Gene action controlling grain yield and secondary traits in southern African maize hybrids under drought and non-drought environments
Breeding maize hybrids for drought tolerance would significantly reduce yield loss due to drought in southern Africa. Mode of gene action controlling yield and secondary traits was investigated by mating 27 inbred lines, ...
Evaluation of early to medium maturing open pollinated maize varieties in SADC region using GGE biplot based on the SREG model
Analysis of multi-environment trials (METs) of genotypes (G) and genotype × environment (GE) interactions for yield performance across environments, and selection of the best genotypes is an important routine in maize ...
Gene action controlling gray leaf spot resistance in southern African maize germplasm
Gray leaf spot disease (GLS; caused by Cercospora zeae-maydis Tehon and Daniels) is among the major maize (Zea mays L.) production constraints in southern Africa. Maize is predominantly grown by small-scale farmers without ...
Nonlinear heat effects on African maize as evidenced by historical yield trials
New approaches are needed to accelerate understanding of climate impacts on crop yields, particularly in tropical regions. Past studies have relied mainly on crop-simulation models1, 2 or statistical analyses based on ...
