Effect of the few-branched-1 (Fbr1) tassel mutation on performance of maize inbred lines and hybrids evaluated under stress and optimum environments
(Istituto Sperimentale per la Cerealicoltura, 2016)
To introduce new genetic diversity into the bread wheat gene pool from its progenitor, Aegilops tauschii (Coss.) Schmalh, 33 primary synthetic hexaploid wheat genotypes (SYN) were crossed to 20 spring bread wheat (BW) ...
A novel remote sensing approach for prediction of maize yield under different conditions of nitrogen fertilization
Maize crop production is constrained worldwide by nitrogen (N) availability and particularly in poor tropical and subtropical soils. The development of affordable high-throughput crop monitoring and phenotyping techniques ...
Strand-specific RNA-Seq transcriptome analysis of genotypes with and without low-phosphorus tolerance provides novel insights into phosphorus-use efficiency in maize
(BioMed Central Ltd, 2016)
Background Phosphorus (P) stress is a global problem in maize production. Although macro/microarray technologies have greatly increased our general knowledge of maize responses to P stress, a greater understanding of the ...
Identification and functional characterization of the AGO1 ortholog in maize
Eukaryotic Argonaute proteins play primary roles in miRNA and siRNA pathways that are essential for numerous developmental and biological processes. However, the functional roles of the four ZmAGO1 genes have not yet been ...
Evaluation of CIMMYT drought tolerant maize germplasm for resistance to weevil (Sitophilus zeamais Motschulky) damage
(Academic Journals, 2015)
This study was carried out to evaluate and assess the phenotypic correlation between the primary and secondary weevil resistant traits of 20 drought tolerant (DT) late maturing maize hybrids (LHYB) to weevil (Sitophilus ...
The role of CIMMYT to the progress of maize in Indonesia
(Department of Agriculture Republic of Indonesia; CIMMYT, [2008?])
Smallholder farmer innovation and contexts in maize-based Conservation Agriculture Systems in Central Malawi
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2017)
The increased threat of food insecurity and climate change requires more sustainable ways of agriculture intensification in African smallholder farming systems. Ample evidence confirms that maize-based conservation agriculture ...
