Diversidad genetica en maices nativos mexicanos tropicales
(Sociedad Mexicana de Fitogenética, 2013)
Mexico is considered the center of origin and domestication of maize (Zea mays L.), and it is recognized as one of the most important centers of diversity. Evaluation of native maize diversity is specially important for ...
Evaluacion de poblaciones F2 de maiz de alta calidad de proteina en los llanos orientales de Colombia
(Universidad Nacional de Colombia, 2010)
Doscientas cincuenta y tres familias F2 de alta calidad de proteina (ACP) provenientes del CIMMYT (Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maíz y Trigo) fueron evaluadas en dos ensayos diferentes en Menegua, una localidad ...
Genomic regions associated with root traits under drought stress in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
An association mapping panel, named as CIMMYT Asia association mapping (CAAM) panel, involving 396 diverse tropical maize lines were phenotyped for various structural and functional traits of roots under drought and ...
Maize (Zea mays L.) genome size indicated by 180-bp knob abundance is associated with flowering time
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Flowering time is considered one of the most important agronomic traits in maize (Zea mays L.), and previous studies have indicated that this trait is correlated with genome size. We observed a significant difference in ...
Genetic analysis of heat adaptive traits in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences, 2017)
Studies were conducted to determine the gene action for heat adaptive traits and grain yield under heat stress condition by using the hybrids generated in L×T and NCD-II. The results revealed predominance of non-additive ...
Preferences and constraints of maize farmers in the development and adoption of improved varieties in the mid-altitude, sub-humid agro-ecology of Western Ethiopia
(Academic Journals, 2013)
Understanding farmers' production constraints and preferences is important in maize breeding, especially underlying successful adoption of improved varieties and their production packages. This study was conducted to assess ...
Seleccion para contenido de aceite en el grano de variedades de maiz de la raza comiteco de Chiapas, Mexico
(Colegio de Postgraduados, 2010)
En el estado de Chiapas hay regiones con índices altos de desnutrición humana porque la dieta de la mayoría de sus habitantes se basa en el grano de maíz. Para el consumo humano y la industria se requieren maíces con mayor ...
Identification of QTL for early vigor and Stay-Green conferring tolerance to drought in two connected advanced backcross populations in Tropical Maize (Zea mays L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
We aimed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for secondary traits related to grain yield (GY) in two BC1F2:3 backcross populations (LPSpop and DTPpop) under well-watered (4 environments; WW) and drought stressed (6; ...
Morpho-physiological traits associated with cold stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2010)
Winter season maize (Zea mays L.) has emerged a new crop in many parts of South and Southeast Asia, where the crop has to face low temperature regimes (<5°C) for few weeks during vegetative growth stage. The objective of ...
QTL Mapping of Agronomic Waterlogging Tolerance Using Recombinant Inbred Lines Derived from Tropical Maize (Zea mays L) Germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Waterlogging is an important abiotic stress constraint that causes significant yield losses in maize grown throughout south and south-east Asia due to erratic rainfall patterns. The most economic option to offset the damage ...
