Genetic diversity among selected elite CIMMYT maize hybrids in East and Southern Africa
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
Genetic gain within the CIMMYT Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) hybrid maize (Zea mays L.) breeding program from 2000 to 2010 was recently estimated at 0.85 to 2.2% yr−1 under various environmental conditions. Over 100 ...
Genome-wide association for plant height and flowering time across 15 tropical maize populations under managed drought stress and well-watered conditions in Sub-Saharan Africa
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
Genotyping breeding materials is now relatively inexpensive but phenotyping costs have remained the same. One method to increase gene mapping power is to use genome-wide genetic markers to combine existing phenotype data ...

MLN pathogen diagnosis, MLN-free seed production and safe exchange to non-endemic countries
Maize Lethal Necrosis (MLN) is a viral disease caused by a synergistic interaction of Maize Chlorotic Mottle Virus (MCMV) and Sugarcane Mosaic Virus (SCMV) or other viruses such as Maize Dwarf Mosaic Virus (MDMV) or Wheat ...
