Metabolic and phenotypic responses of greenhouse-grown maize hybrids to experimentally controlled drought stress
Adaptation to abiotic stresses like drought is an important acquirement of agriculturally relevant crops like maize. Development of enhanced drought tolerance in crops grown in climatic zones where drought is a very dominant ...
Near-Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIRS) for Protein, Tryptophan, and Lysine Evaluation in Quality Protein Maize (QPM) Breeding Programs
Quality protein maize (QPM) has approximately twice the tryptophan (Trp) and lysine (Lys) concentrations in protein compared to normal maize. Because several genetic systems control the protein quality of QPM, it is essential ...
Metodo economico y eficiente para la cuantificacion colorimetrica de lisina en grano de maiz
Los maíces (Zea Mays L.) de alta calidad proteínica (ACP) tienen mayor contenido de lisina y triptófano, dos aminoácidos esenciales que normalmente están presentes en bajas cantidades en el grano de maíz. La metodología ...
Cell wall composition and biomass digestibility diversity in Mexican maize (Zea mays L) landraces and CIMMYT inbred lines
(Consiglio per la ricerca in agricoltura e l'analisi dell'economia agraria, Forestry Reaserch Centre; Istituto Sperimentale per la Cerealicoltura, 2013)
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 ...
