Marker-assisted breeding of improved maternal haploid inducers in maize for the tropical/subtropical regions
For efficient production of doubled haploid (DH) lines in maize, maternal haploid inducer lines with high haploid induction rate (HIR) and good adaptation to the target environments is an important requirement. In this ...
Genome-wide association study to identify genomic regions influencing spontaneous fertility in maize haploids
Efficient production and use of doubled haploid lines can greatly accelerate genetic gains in maize breeding programs. One of the critical steps in standard doubled haploid line production is doubling the haploid genome ...
Testcross performance of doubled haploid maize lines derived from tropical adapted backcross populations
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2011)
Doubled haploid (DH) lines produced by in vivo induction of maternal haploids are routinely used in maize breeding. The present study was carried out to assess the performance of 75 doubled haploid maize testcrosses and ...
Genotype by environment interactions and agronomic performance of doubled haploids testcross maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids
In vivo production of maternal haploid plants and advancement in chromosome doubling technology has led to rapid production of doubled haploid homozygous lines. These in turn have boosted rapid advancement in most breeding ...
