12th Asian Maize Conference and Expert Consultation on maize for food, feed, nutrition; and environmental security; Bangkok (Thailand), 30-1 Aug-Nov 2014 : extended summaries
(APAARI; CIMMYT; FAO; Thailand Department of Agriculture, 2014)
This book includes the extended summaries of the scientific presentations made during the 12th Asian Maize Conference and Expert Consultation on “Maize for Food, Feed, Nutrition and Environmental Security” held at Bangkok, ...
Improving maize grain yield under drought stress and non-stress environments in Sub-Saharan Africa using marker-assisted recurrent selection
In marker-assisted recurrent selection (MARS), a subset of molecular markers significantly associated with target traits of interest are used to predict the breeding value of individual plants, followed by rapid recombination ...
Relative importance of general combining ability and specific combining ability among tropical maize (zea mays l.) inbreds under contrasting nitrogen environments
Low-N stress is among the major abiotic stresses causing yield reductions in maize grown in the mid-altitude tropical environments of Africa. This study estimates the relative importance of general combining ability (GCA) ...
Heterosis and combining ability among CIMMYT's mid-altitude early to intermediate maturing maize (Zea mays L.) populations
Maize is an important food crop in sub-Saharan Africa. There is an increasing demand for early maturing maize cultivars even though long-season maize cultivars yield more than early maturing cultivars under favourable ...
Large-scale screening for maize drought resistance using multiple selection criteria evaluated under water-stressed and well-watered environments
A total of 550 maize inbred lines collected from global breeding programs were evaluated for drought resistance under both well-watered and water-stressed environments. The evaluation was based on multiple measurements of ...
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, ...
