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 ...
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 ...
Comparative performance of ground vs. aerially assessed RGB and multispectral indices for early-growth evaluation of maize performance under phosphorus fertilization
Low soil fertility is one of the factors most limiting agricultural production, with phosphorus deficiency being among the main factors, particularly in developing countries. To deal with such environmental constraints, ...
Maize production in a changing climate: Impacts, adaptation, and mitigation strategies
Plant breeding and improved management options have made remarkable progress in increasing crop yields during the past century. However, climate change projections suggest that large yield losses will be occurring in many ...
Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia
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 ...
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 ...
