Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
Nitrogen leaching and soil nitrate, and ammonium levels in an irrigated wheat system in northern Mexico
Nitrate leaching from agricultural soils can represent a substantial loss of fertilizer nitrogen (N), but a large variation in losses has been reported. We report N leaching losses under four N fertilizer treatments and ...
Application of biotechnologies to wheat breeding
Characterization of genetic diversity of puroindoline genes in Mexican wheat landraces
Grain hardness is a major factor determining milling performance of common wheat. It determines the amount of damaged starch generated during milling, and therefore the end use of a given variety. One hundred and two lines ...
Three new teosintes (Zea spp., Poaceae) from Mexico
Premise of the study : Teosinte species are the closest relatives of maize and represent an important but increasingly rare genetic resource for maize improvement and the study of evolution by domestication. Three ...

Effectiveness of selection at CIMMYT's main maize breeding sites in Mexico for performance at sites in Africa and vice versa
The exchange of elite breeding materials across regions is an important way in which multinational maize breeding programmes access new genetic variation, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Our objectives were to examine ...
