Fine mapping a tarspot complex resistance QTL in maize
CIMMYT Annual Report 2012: Agricultural research for development improves food security
Farmers – particularly smallholders – are where it all starts. Based on field-based evidence and on CIMMYT experiences of nearly 50 years, providing small-scale farmers with high-yielding, disease-resistant and climate-ready ...
Genetic analysis of tropical maize inbred lines for resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease
Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is a recent outbreak in eastern Africa and has emerged as a significant threat to maize production in the region. The disease is caused by the co-infection of Maize chlorotic mottle virus ...
CIMMYT 1988 Annual report: Delivering diversity
To evoke the theme of this Annual Report, our front cover features the phrase "delivering diversity." In one sense this phrase denotes the conveyance of genetic diversity through germplasm dissemination. In a second sense ...
Fusarium head scab: global status and future prospects
Fusarium head scab of wheat was first reported in England around 1884; however, scab is generally more important in warm and humid areas. The various fusaria that cause scab are among the most variable and insidious fungi. ...
Suwan-1: maize from Thailand to the world
The CIMMYT Maize Program is committed to helping national programs develop and disseminate improved germplasm and production technology. Our contributions are well documented; our work could be deemed a success story. This ...
Validation of consensus quantitative trait loci associated with resistance to multiple foliar pathogens of maize
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2009)
Maize production in sub-Saharan Africa incurs serious losses to epiphytotics of foliar diseases. Quantitative trait loci conditioning partial resistance (rQTL) to infection by causal agents of gray leaf spot (GLS), northern ...
