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 ...
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 ...
Latin American maize germplasm regeneration and conservation
During 1992-96, a collaborative project involving genebanks of 14 countries in Latin America, with economic and/or technical support from USDA under project Noah, the USDA-ARS National Seed Storage Laboratory (NSSL), and ...
Maize diversity, rural development policy, and farmers' practices: lessons from Chiapas, Mexico
Maize diversity is important to the livelihoods of millions of farmers in Mexico, the crop's centre of origin; to maize breeders seeking new genetic material; and to producers and consumers worldwide. Key social processes ...
Maize diversity, poverty, and market access: lessons from Mexico
Crop genetic diversity and poverty are linked: first, resource-poor farmers often maintain genetic diversity; and second, crop diversity, when properly valued by the market, has the potential to alleviate poverty. This ...
