An integrated approach to maintaining cereal productivity under climate change
Wheat, rice, maize, pearl millet, and sorghum provide over half of the world's food calories. To maintain global food security, with the added challenge of climate change, there is an increasing need to exploit existing ...
Evaluating maize genotype performance under low nitrogen conditions using RGB UAV phenotyping techniques
Maize is the most cultivated cereal in Africa in terms of land area and production, but low soil nitrogen availability often constrains yields. Developing new maize varieties with high and reliable yields using traditional ...
Unmanned aerial platform‑based multi‑spectral imaging for field phenotyping of maize
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: Recent developments in unmanned aerial platforms (UAP) have provided research opportunities in assessing land allocation and crop physiological traits, including response to abiotic and biotic stresses. UAP-based ...
Evaluating the performance of different commercial and pre-commercial maize varieties under low nitrogen conditions using affordable phenotyping tools
Maize is the most commonly cultivated cereal in Africa in terms of land area and production. Low yields in this region are very often associated with issues related to low Nitrogen (N), such as low soil fertility or low ...
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 ...
High-throughput method for ear phenotyping and kernel weight estimation in maize using ear digital imaging
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: Grain yield, ear and kernel attributes can assist to understand the performance of maize plant under different environmental conditions and can be used in the variety development process to address farmer's ...
Marker-assisted breeding of improved maternal haploid inducers in maize for the tropical/subtropical regions
For efficient production of doubled haploid (DH) lines in maize, maternal haploid inducer lines with high haploid induction rate (HIR) and good adaptation to the target environments is an important requirement. In this ...
High-throughput phenotyping of canopy cover and senescence in maize field trials using aerial digital canopy imaging
In the crop breeding process, the use of data collection methods that allow reliable assessment of crop adaptation traits, faster and cheaper than those currently in use, can significantly improve resource use efficiency ...
