Análisis genético de la tolerancia a Cercospora spp. en líneas endogamicas de maíz tropical
(Colegio de Postgraduados, 2007)
Gray leaf spot of maize (Zea mays L.), caused by the fungus Cercospora zeae maydis Tehon & Daniels, has become an economically important disease in tropical humid maize growing areas of the Republic of Colombia. To implement ...
Relative importance of general combining ability and specific combining ability among tropical maize (Zea mays L.) inbreds under contrasting nitrogen environments
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2008)
Low-N stress is among the major abiotic stresses causing yield reductions in maize grown in the mid-altitude tropical environments of Africa. This study estimates the relative importance of general combining ability (GCA) ...
Genetic distance based on SSR markers and testcross performance of maize inbred lines
(National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, 2006)
The identification of parental inbred lines to develop superior hybrids is a rather costly and time-consuming step in maize breeding. In some cases, pedigree information has been used to select diverse parental lines. In ...
