Control of Busseola fusca and Chilo partellus stem borers by Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-d-endotoxins from Cry1Ab gene Event MON810 in greenhouse containment trials
Previous testing of several public Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-maize events did not show control of the African stem borer (Busseola fusca Fuller), an important stem borer species, without which stewardship would be ...
Combining ability of maize (Zea mays L.) inbred lines resistant to stem borers
Ten inbred parents with varying resistance levels to Chilo partellus and Busseola fusca were crossed in a half diallel mating scheme to generate 45 F1 hybrids. The hybrids and five commercial checks were evaluated across ...
Testing public Bt maize events for control of stem borers in the first confined field trials in Kenya
Transgenic maize (Zea mays L), developed using modified genes from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), controls stem borers without observable negative effects to humans, livestock or the environment, and is now ...
Winter wheat genotypes under different levels of nitrogen and water stress: Changes in grain protein compositionQuantification of Bt Delta-endotoxins in leaf tissues of tropical Bt maize populations
Hard white winter wheat with superior and consistent quality is preferable for Asian markets. This study investigated the combined influences of moisture deficit during grain-fill and N management on protein quality, dough ...
Economic analysis of different options in integrated pest and soil fertility management in maize systems of Western Kenya
The major biotic constraints to the production of maize, the major staple food in Western Kenya, are field pests such as Striga and stem borers, and low soil fertility. To counter these constraints, new cropping systems ...
