Application of remote sensing for phenotyping tar spot complex resistance in maize
Tar spot complex (TSC), caused by at least two fungal pathogens, Phyllachora maydis and Monographella maydis, is one of the major foliar diseases of maize in Central and South America. P. maydis was also detected in the ...
Genome-wide association study in Asia-adapted tropical maize reveals novel and explored genomic regions for sorghum downy mildew resistance
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Globally, downy mildews are among the important foliar diseases of maize that cause significant yield losses. We conducted a genome-wide association study for sorghum downy mildew (SDM; Peronosclerospora sorghi) resistance ...
Grain yield, stem borer and disease resistance of new maize hybrids in Kenya
(Academic Journals, 2011)
Evaluation of 30 maize hybrids for yield and resistance to stem borers and foliar diseases in four agro-ecologies in Kenya was conducted in 2009. There were significant differences among the hybrids in leaf damage, number ...
Genetic architecture of maize chlorotic mottle virus and maize lethal necrosis through GWAS, linkage analysis and genomic prediction in tropical maize germplasm
Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) is a serious threat to the food security of maize-growing smallholders in sub-Saharan Africa. The ability of the maize chlorotic mottle virus (MCMV) to interact with other members of the Potyviridae ...
Occurence of corn stunt spiroplasma at different elevations in Mexico
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 1989)
A survey of Spiroplasma kunkelii, or corn stunt spiroplasma (CSS), was conducted in Mexico from October 1985 to March 1988 using phase contrast or dark field light microscopy (DFM) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay ...
Genetic analysis of tropical maize inbred lines for resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease
Maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is a recent outbreak in eastern Africa and has emerged as a significant threat to maize production in the region. The disease is caused by the co-infection of Maize chlorotic mottle virus ...
