Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
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 ...
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, ...
Agricultural extension, collective action and innovation systems: Lessons on network brokering from Peru and Mexico
Purpose: New approaches to extension service delivery are needed that stimulate increased agricultural production, contribute to collective action and which also foster the emergence of agricultural innovation systems. ...
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 ...

Adoption of interrelated sustainable agricultural practices in smallholder systems: Evidence from rural Tanzania
Soil fertility depletion is considered one of the main biophysical limiting factors for increasing per capita food production for smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa. The adoption and diffusion of sustainable ...
