Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia
(GMRI; CIMMYT, 2011)
This includes the extended summaries of the scientific presentations made during the 11th Asian Maize Conference held in Nanning, China, during 7-11 November 2011. The Conference is co-organized by the International Maize ...
Proceedings of the eighth asian regional maize workshop: new technologies for the new millennium
This is the proceedings of the Eighth Asian Regional Maize Workshop, held in Bangkok, Thailand, during 5-8 August 2002, and co-sponsored by International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, the Department of Agriculture ...
Genome‑wide association and genomic prediction of resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease in tropical maize germplasm
The maize lethal necrosis disease (MLND) caused by synergistic interaction of Maize chlorotic mottle virus and Sugarcane mosaic virus, and has emerged as a serious threat to maize production in eastern Africa since 2011. ...
First Report of Maize chlorotic mottle virus and Maize Lethal Necrosis on Maize in Ethiopia
(American Phytopathological Society (APS), 2015)
Maize lethal necrosis is a disease of maize caused by the combination of Maize chlorotic mottle virus (MCMV) and any of the viruses belonging to the Potyviridae family. Maize lethal necrosis was first identified on the ...
Genomic prediction in biparental tropical maize populations in water-stressed and well-watered environments using low-density and GBS SNPs
(Springer Nature, 2015)
One of the most important applications of genomic selection in maize breeding is to predict and identify the best untested lines from biparental populations, when the training and validation sets are derived from the same ...
Evaluating maize genotype performance under low nitrogen conditions using RGB UAV phenotyping techniques
Maize is the most cultivated cereal in Africa in terms of land area and production, but low soil nitrogen availability often constrains yields. Developing new maize varieties with high and reliable yields using traditional ...
QTL mapping in three tropical maize populations reveals a set of constitutive and adaptive genomic regions for drought tolerance
Despite numerous published reports of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for drought-related traits, practical applications of such QTL in maize improvement are scarce. Identifying QTL of sizeable effects that express more or ...
Grain yield performance and flowering synchrony of CIMMYT’s tropical maize (Zea mays L.) parental inbred lines and single crosses
Maize production constraints in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are being addressed by CIMMYT and partners through an array of projects, focusing on developing and evaluating parental inbred lines and single-crosses as well as ...
Identification of in vivo induced maternal haploids in maize using seedling traits
In vivo haploid induction in high frequency followed by efficient identification of haploids are important components of deriving completely homozygous doubled haploid (DH) lines in maize. Several genetic marker systems ...
