Influence of sources of seed on varietal adoption behavior of wheat farmers in indo-gangetic plains of India
Seed is the most crucial input in the crop production cycle. Although new seed varieties are developed and released frequently, they often do not reach the farmers because of underdeveloped and inefficient seed delivery ...

From genotype x environment interaction to gene x environment interaction
Historically in plant breeding a large number of statistical models has been developed and used for studying genotype x environment interaction. These models have helped plant breeders to assess the stability of economically ...
A general Bayesian estimation method of linear-bilinear models applied to plant breeding trials with genotype × environment interaction
Statistical analyses of two-way tables with interaction arise in many different fields of research. This study proposes the von Mises?Fisher distribution as a prior on the set of orthogonal matrices in a linear?bilinear ...
Screening experimental designs for quantitative trait loci, association mapping, genotype-by environment interaction, and other investigations
Crop breeding programs using conventional approaches, as well as new biotechnological tools, rely heavily on data resulting from the evaluation of genotypes in different environmental conditions (agronomic practices, ...

Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa (DTMA)
Listen to what Tsedeke Abate, leader of the DTMA program, has to say about maize in Africa and the importance of planning ahead for more and more frequent droughts.
Behaviour of Quality Protein Maize (QPM) genotypes under well irrigated and water stress conditions in subtropical climate
Drought or water stress is one of the prime problems affecting production of maize at global level. A major ob¬jective of QPM breeding programs in semi arid tropics or subtropical climatic conditions is to increase genetic ...
