Relative performance of testers to identify elite lines of corn (Zea mays L.)
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 1998)
Testcross evaluation is used to determine the relative potential of corn (Zea mays L.) lines in a hybrid breeding program. Choice of tester is important for efficient selection among lines for their potential in hybrids. ...
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 ...
