Asian [Regional] Maize Conference, 11. Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia - Book of Extended Summaries
This includes the extended summaries of the scientific presentations made during the 11th Asian Maize Conference held in Nanning, China, during 7-11 November 2011. The Conference is co-organized by the International Maize ...
Global trends, challenges and opportunities for maize : Lessons for Asia
MLN pathogen diagnosis, MLN-free seed production and safe exchange to non-endemic countries
Maize Lethal Necrosis (MLN) is a viral disease caused by a synergistic interaction of Maize Chlorotic Mottle Virus (MCMV) and Sugarcane Mosaic Virus (SCMV) or other viruses such as Maize Dwarf Mosaic Virus (MDMV) or Wheat ...
Adapting maize production to climate change in sub-Saharan Africa
Given the accumulating evidence of climate change in sub-Saharan Africa, there is an urgent need to develop more climate resilient maize systems. Adaptation strategies to climate change in maize systems in sub-Saharan ...
Genetic variability for kernel B-carotene and utilization of crtRB1 3'TE gene for biofortification in maize (Zea mays L.)
Carotenoids are the major sources of dietary precursor of vitamin A and act as potential antioxidant besides preventing diseases such as night blindness in humans. Vitamin A deficiency is a global problem, but is particularly ...
Molecular marker-assisted breeding options for maize improvement in Asia
Maize is one of the most important food and feed crops in Asia, and is a source of income for several million farmers. Despite impressive progress made in the last few decades through conventional breeding in the ?Asia-7? ...
Phenotypic evaluation of a set of selected exotic maize inbred lines for drought stress tolerance
Increased rainfall variability accentuated by climate change will have severe effects on production of maize which is grown predominantly as a rainfed crop in India. A set of 31 exotic inbred lines were analysed under both ...
Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Genetic variability and genotype x environment interactions for kernel iron and zinc concentrations in maize (Zea mays) genotypes
Micronutrient enrichment in the major staple food crops is an important breeding goal in view of the extensive problem of 'hidden hunger' caused by micronutrient malnutrition. Kernel iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) concentrations ...
