Behaviour of Quality Protein Maize (QPM) genotypes under well irrigated and water stress conditions in subtropical climate
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2012)
Drought or water stress is one of the prime problems affecting production of maize at global level. A major ob¬jective of QPM breeding programs in semi arid tropics or subtropical climatic conditions is to increase genetic ...
Metodo economico y eficiente para la cuantificacion colorimetrica de lisina en grano de maiz
(Sociedad Mexicana de Fitogenética, 2011)
Los maíces (Zea Mays L.) de alta calidad proteínica (ACP) tienen mayor contenido de lisina y triptófano, dos aminoácidos esenciales que normalmente están presentes en bajas cantidades en el grano de maíz. La metodología ...
Marker assisted introgression of opaque2 gene into herbicide resistant elite maize inbred lines
(Academic Journals, 2006)
Marker assisted selection in combination with conventional breeding can greatly accelerate the introgression of modified opaque2 genotype into herbicide resistant maize. By combining these two approaches, time and costs ...
Enhancing introgression of the Opaque-2 trait into elite maize lines using simple sequence repeats
(African Crop Science Society, 2005)
To improve on the efficiency of Quality Protein Maize (QPM) breeding in Uganada, the utility of three simple sequence repeats (SSR) markers (phi057, phi112 and umc1066) in selection and introgression of the opaque-2 (o2) ...
Exploration of farmers' preferences and perceptions of maize varieties: implications on development and adoption of quality protein maize (QPM) varieties in Zimbabwe
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2014)
Quality protein maize (QPM) technology is relatively new in Zimbabwe and farmer awareness of QPM was low. Participation of smallholder farmers in the development of QPM breeding objectives and dissemination strategies was ...
