Multi-site, multi-season field tests demostrate that herbicide seed-coating herbicide-resitance maize controls Striga spp. and increases yields in several African countries
Plant parasitic Striga (witchweed) species have not been controlled in susceptible host crops prior to exerting damage. High dose, localized herbicide levels can be applied on or near maize seed bearing acetolactate synthase ...
Crop-livestock interactions in smallholder farming systems and their implications for the adoption of Conservation Agriculture in Kenya

Control of Busseola fusca and Chilo partellus stem borers by Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-d-endotoxins from Cry1Ab gene Event MON810 in greenhouse containment trials
Previous testing of several public Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-maize events did not show control of the African stem borer (Busseola fusca Fuller), an important stem borer species, without which stewardship would be ...
Testing public Bt maize events for control of stem borers in the first confined field trials in Kenya
Transgenic maize (Zea mays L), developed using modified genes from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), controls stem borers without observable negative effects to humans, livestock or the environment, and is now ...
Levels of control of Chilo partellus stem borer in segregating tropical Bt maize populations in Kenya
In Kenya, stem borers destroy an estimated 400,000 metric tons, or 13.5%, of farmers' annual maize harvest costing about US$80 millions. Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) maize controls stem borers without harming humans, livestock ...
