Morpho-physiological traits associated with heat stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) at reproductive stage
(Southern Cross Publishing Group, 2019)
Stability in performance of quality protein maize under abiotic stress
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2008)
Quality protein maize (QPM) has emerged an affordable and viable option to alleviate protein malnutrition and reduce animal feed costs, given that its grain protein contains more than double the lysine and tryptophan ...
Phenotyping for abiotic stress tolerance in maize low nitrogen stress: a field manual
Poor soil fertility is one of the primary constraints to maize production in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) where most of the farming land is heavily depleted of nitrogen (N) as a result of repeated crop cultivation over several ...
Management of drought stress in field phenotyping
In agriculture, the term drought refers to a meteorological condition in which the amount of water available through rainfall and/or irrigation is insufficient to meet the crop needs for optimal growth and development. ...
Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia
(GMRI; CIMMYT, 2011)
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 ...
Phenotyping for abiotic stress tolerance in maize: waterlogging stress. A field manual
Maize crops grown during the summer rainy season in the tropics occasionally face extreme weather conditions that limit crop establishment and yield potential. Among various abiotic stresses, contingent/intermittent soil ...
