Asian [Regional] Maize Conference, 11. Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia - Book of Extended Summaries
This includes the extended summaries of the scientific presentations made during the 11th Asian Maize Conference held in Nanning, China, during 7-11 November 2011. The Conference is co-organized by the International Maize ...
Characterization of maize germplasm grown in Eastern and Southern Africa: Results of the 2000 regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT
(International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center - CIMMYT, 2001)
Cell wall composition and biomass digestibility diversity in Mexican maize (Zea mays L) landraces and CIMMYT inbred lines
Maize is one of the most important crops worldwide. Historically, breeding efforts in this crop have been primarily focused on the improvement of grain yield and stability and just recently also on the potential utility ...
Comparative intake of white- versus orange-colored maize by Zambian children in the context of promotion of biofortified maize
Background. Vitamin A deficiency is associated with poor health outcomes related to reproduction, growth, vision, and immunity. Biofortification of staple crops is a novel strategy for combating vitamin A deficiency in ...
Formation of heterotic groups and understanding genetic effects in a provitamin a biofortified maize breeding program
Developing biofortified maize cultivars is a viable approach to combat the widespread problem of vitamin A deficiency among people for whom maize is a staple food. To enhance CIMMYT's provitamin A maize breeding efforts, ...
The usefulness of iron bioavailability as a target trait for breeding maize (Zea mays L.) with enhanced nutritional value
Iron (Fe) deficiency is the most widespread nutritional problem, affecting as many as half of the world's population. Only a small fraction (2?15%) of Fe from plant sources is typically bioavailable, that is, available for ...
Genetic diversity of African maize inbred lines revealed by SSR markers
Knowledge of genetic diversity (GD) and relationships among maize inbred lines is indispensable in a breeding program. Our objectives were to (1) investigate the level of genetic diversity among maize inbred lines and (2) ...
Characterization of maize germplasm grown in Eastern and Southern Africa: Results of the 2004 regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT
The Summary Tables present grain yields averaged across sites with significant differences between entries, for each of the five to six environments. Data on agronomic performance such as anthesis date, plant and ear height, ...
