Heterosis and combining ability of highland quality protein maize inbred lines
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2015)
Quality protein maize (QPM) cultivars contain higher levels of lysine and tryptophan as compared to non-QPM counterparts, and can minimize the risk of protein malnutrition among communities increasingly dependent on maize ...
Agronomic performance and breeding potential of selected inbred lines for improvement of protein quality of adapted Ugandan maize germoplasm
(African Crop Science Society, 2006)
The use of exotic Quality Protein Maize (QPM) donors to broaden the germplasm base used by breeders is important. This study evaluated the potential QPM inbred donors from CIMMYT for improvement of the protein quality of ...
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 ...
Stability in performance of quality protein maize under abiotic stress
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2008)
Quality protein maize (QPM) has emerged an affordable and viable option to alleviate protein malnutrition and reduce animal feed costs, given that its grain protein contains more than double the lysine and tryptophan ...
Quality protein maize (QPM) for school feeding in Ethiopia: stakeholders consultation, sensory evaluation and potential impact
Recently there is an increased attention among policy and research practitioners on the link between school feeding programs (SFP) and agricultural development. Through purchases and procurement of locally produced foods, ...
