This is proceeding of the 10th Asian Regional Maize Workshop held in Makassar, Indonesia during 20 - 23 October 2008, and co-organized by International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center CIMMYT), Mexico and The Indonesian ...
Potential benefits of drought and heat tolerance for adapting maize to climate change in tropical environments
Climate change and population growth pose great challenges to the food security of the millions of people who grow maize in the already fragile agricultural systems in tropical environments. There is an urgent need for ...

Management of drought stress in field phenotyping
Maize for Asian tropics: Chasing the moving target
(Hyderabad India, 2018)
Downy mildew resistance in maize (Zea mays L.) across Peronosclerospora species in lowland tropical Asia
Downy mildew (DM) is one of the most destructive diseases of maize in the humid sub-tropical and tropical regions of Asia. The most effective and efficient way of managing losses due to DM is to develop durable host-plant ...
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 ...
Genome-wide association study in Asia-adapted tropical maize reveals novel and explored genomic regions for sorghum downy mildew resistance
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Globally, downy mildews are among the important foliar diseases of maize that cause significant yield losses. We conducted a genome-wide association study for sorghum downy mildew (SDM; Peronosclerospora sorghi) resistance ...
Use of genomic estimated breeding values results in rapid genetic gains for drought tolerance in maize
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
More than 80% of the 19 million ha of maize (Zea mays L.) in tropical Asia is rainfed and prone to drought. The breeding methods for improving drought tolerance (DT), including genomic selection (GS), are geared to ...
