Independent introductions and admixtures have contributed to adaptation of European maize and its American counterparts
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Through the local selection of landraces, humans have guided the adaptation of crops to a vast range of climatic and ecological conditions. This is particularly true of maize, which was domesticated in a restricted area ...
Screening of maize germplasm for resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease in Zambia
(Academic Journals, 2021)
Genetic diversity among selected elite CIMMYT maize hybrids in East and Southern Africa
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
Genetic gain within the CIMMYT Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) hybrid maize (Zea mays L.) breeding program from 2000 to 2010 was recently estimated at 0.85 to 2.2% yr−1 under various environmental conditions. Over 100 ...
Evaluation of CIMMYT drought tolerant maize germplasm for resistance to weevil (Sitophilus zeamais Motschulky) damage
(Academic Journals, 2015)
This study was carried out to evaluate and assess the phenotypic correlation between the primary and secondary weevil resistant traits of 20 drought tolerant (DT) late maturing maize hybrids (LHYB) to weevil (Sitophilus ...
Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
(Public Library of Science, 2012)
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
Genetic diversity and molecular evolution of chinese waxy maize germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Waxy maize (Zea mays L. var. certaina Kulesh), with many excellent characters in terms of starch composition and economic value, has grown in China for a long history and its production has increased dramatically in recent ...
Comparative SNP and haplotype analysis reveals a higher genetic diversity and rapider LD decay in tropical than temperate germplasm in maize
(Public Library of Science, 2011)
Understanding of genetic diversity and linkage disequilibrium (LD) decay in diverse maize germplasm is fundamentally important for maize improvement. A total of 287 tropical and 160 temperate inbred lines were genotyped ...
CIMMYT Report on maize improvement 1978-79
This 1978-79 report on maize covers the research and training activities of CIMMYT scientists and presents data from international testing program activities during these years. The progress we report is the result of a ...
Tropical lowland maize subprogram: annual research report 2004
The year 2004 was the first of the Tropical Ecosystems (TES) program. Our research activities in the tropical lowland subprogram had good support from the government of Mexico through SAGARPA that provided resources to ...
