Genetic analysis of tropical quality protein maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important source of carbohydrates and protein in the diet in sub-Saharan Africa. The objectives of this study were to (i) estimate general (GCA) and specific combining abilities (SCA) of 13 new ...
Genetic dissection of drought and heat‐responsive agronomic traits in wheat
(John Wiley & Sons, 2019)
High yield and wide adaptation are principal targets of wheat breeding but are hindered by limited knowledge on genetic basis of agronomic traits and abiotic stress tolerances. In this study, 277 wheat accessions were ...
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. ...
