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 ...

Prediction of Genetic Values of Quantitative Traits in Plant Breeding Using Pedigree and Molecular Markers
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding. However, the evaluation of models for GS in real plant populations is very limited. This article evaluates ...
Wheat genetic resources enhancement by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)
The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) acts as a catalyst and leader in a global maize and wheat innovation network that serves the poor in the developing world. Drawing on strong science and effective ...
Adoption analysis of resource-conserving technologies in rice (Oryza sativa)-wheat (Triticum aestivum) cropping system of South Asia
The bread and rice baskets of South Asia feeding 20% of world population are showing stalled production due to fatigued natural resource bases. The present survey assesses the constraints in adoption of integrated crop and ...
