Genomic prediction enhanced sparse testing for multi-environment trials
(Genetics Society of America, 2020)
Gains in maize genetic improvement in Eastern and Southern Africa: II. CIMMYT open-pollinated variety breeding pipeline
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2017)
Open-pollinated varieties (OP Vs) still represent a significant proportion of the maize (Zea mays L.) seed system in many countries of sub- Saharan Africa. The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) has ...
Effect of trait heritability, training population size and marker density on genomic prediction accuracy estimation in 22 bi-parental tropical maize populations
Genomic selection is being used increasingly in plant breeding to accelerate genetic gain per unit time. One of the most important applications of genomic selection in maize breeding is to predict and select the best ...
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 ...
Identification of donors for low-nitrogen stress with maize lethal necrosis (MLN) tolerance for maize breeding in sub-Saharan Africa
After drought, a major challenge to smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa is low-fertility soils with poor nitrogen (N)-supplying capacity. Many challenges in this region need to be overcome to create a viable fertilizer ...
Identification of in vivo induced maternal haploids in maize using seedling traits
In vivo haploid induction in high frequency followed by efficient identification of haploids are important components of deriving completely homozygous doubled haploid (DH) lines in maize. Several genetic marker systems ...
