Phenotypic evaluation of a set of selected exotic maize inbred lines for drought stress tolerance
Increased rainfall variability accentuated by climate change will have severe effects on production of maize which is grown predominantly as a rainfed crop in India. A set of 31 exotic inbred lines were analysed under both ...
Adapting maize production to climate change in sub-Saharan Africa
(Springer Verlag, 2013)
Given the accumulating evidence of climate change in sub-Saharan Africa, there is an urgent need to develop more climate resilient maize systems. Adaptation strategies to climate change in maize systems in sub-Saharan ...
Improving maize grain yield under drought stress and non-stress environments in Sub-Saharan Africa using marker-assisted recurrent selection
In marker-assisted recurrent selection (MARS), a subset of molecular markers significantly associated with target traits of interest are used to predict the breeding value of individual plants, followed by rapid recombination ...
Hybrids performance of doubled haploid lines derived from 10 tropical bi-parental maize populations evaluated in contrasting environments in Kenya
(Academic Journals, 2017)
The doubled haploid (DH) technology enables maize breeders to develop a large number of homozygous lines rapidly and test them in hybrid combinations early in the breeding cycle. The objectives of this study were to evaluate ...
