Combining ability of maize (Zea mays L.) inbred lines resistant to stem borers
Ten inbred parents with varying resistance levels to Chilo partellus and Busseola fusca were crossed in a half diallel mating scheme to generate 45 F1 hybrids. The hybrids and five commercial checks were evaluated across ...
Genotype by environment interactions and yield stability of stem borer resistant maize hybrids in Kenya
In a maize breeding program, potential genotypes are usually evaluated in different environments before desirable ones are selected. Genotype x environment (G x E) interaction is associated with the differential performance ...
Grain yield, stem borer and disease resistance of new maize hybrids in Kenya
Evaluation of 30 maize hybrids for yield and resistance to stem borers and foliar diseases in four agro-ecologies in Kenya was conducted in 2009. There were significant differences among the hybrids in leaf damage, number ...
Testing public Bt maize events for control of stem borers in the first confined field trials in Kenya
Transgenic maize (Zea mays L), developed using modified genes from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), controls stem borers without observable negative effects to humans, livestock or the environment, and is now ...
Control of Busseola fusca and Chilo partellus stem borers by Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-d-endotoxins from Cry1Ab gene Event MON810 in greenhouse containment trials
Previous testing of several public Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-maize events did not show control of the African stem borer (Busseola fusca Fuller), an important stem borer species, without which stewardship would be ...
Identification of new maize inbred lines with resistance to Striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth
Striga hermonthica is a noxious, obligate hemi-parasite of cereal grasses that causes severe grain yield loss in susceptible maize cultivars in Africa. The development of host plant resistance is one of the most practical ...
