Maize protein determination
This methodology is for estimating the percent protein in maize flour by determining the amount of ammoniacal nitrogen in the sample.
Use of genomic estimated breeding values results in rapid genetic gains for drought tolerance in maize
More than 80% of the 19 million ha of maize (Zea mays L.) in tropical Asia is rainfed and prone to drought. The breeding methods for improving drought tolerance (DT), including genomic selection (GS), are geared to ...
Predicting minimum tillage adoption among smallholder farmers using microlevel and policy variables
Minimum tillage combined with mulching (MTM) is critical to conservation agriculture, yet its use by smallholder farmers raises challenging questions regarding adoption, diffusion and scaling at farm level. In this paper, ...
Genetic diversity and population structure of native maize populations in Latin America and the Caribbean
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
This study describes the genetic diversity and population structure of 194 native maize populations from 23 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. The germplasm, representing 131 distinct landraces, was genetically ...
Development of a maize 55 K SNP array with improved genome coverage for molecular breeding
With the decrease of cost in genotyping, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have gained wide acceptance because of their abundance, even distribution throughout the maize (Zea mays L.) genome, and suitability for ...
