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 ...
Quality control genotyping for assessment of genetic identity and purity in diverse tropical maize inbred lines
Quality control (QC) genotyping is an important component in breeding, but to our knowledge there are not well established protocols for its implementation in practical breeding programs. The objectives of our study were ...
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 ...
Genetic diversity among selected elite CIMMYT maize hybrids in East and Southern Africa
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
Genetic gain within the CIMMYT Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) hybrid maize (Zea mays L.) breeding program from 2000 to 2010 was recently estimated at 0.85 to 2.2% yr−1 under various environmental conditions. Over 100 ...
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 ...
QTL mapping in three tropical maize populations reveals a set of constitutive and adaptive genomic regions for drought tolerance
Despite numerous published reports of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for drought-related traits, practical applications of such QTL in maize improvement are scarce. Identifying QTL of sizeable effects that express more or ...
