Breeding for drought and nitrogen stress tolerance in maize: from theory to practice
Targeted initially for maize breeders in sub-Saharan Africa, the content is based on a successful approach developed at CIMMYT for improving the tolerance of maize to drought and low nitrogen stress. Intended as a supplement ...
Insect resistant maize recent advances and utilization: proceedings of an international symposium held at (CIMMYT)
This publication reports advances in world wide research on the mechanisms and bases of insect resistance in maize; the genetics of resistance; on the biotechnological manipulation of resistance; on techniques for the mass ...
Selection for drought tolerance increases maize yields across a range of nitrogen levels
It is not known whether selection for improved tolerance to a specific abiotic stress leads to correlated changes in performance under other stresses. Drought and N deficiency are important constraints to production in the ...
