Management of drought stress in field phenotyping
In agriculture, the term drought refers to a meteorological condition in which the amount of water available through rainfall and/or irrigation is insufficient to meet the crop needs for optimal growth and development. ...
Morpho-physiological traits associated with heat stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) at reproductive stage
(Southern Cross Publishing Group, 2019)
Maize responsiveness to Azospirillum brasilense: insights into genetic control, heterosis and genomic prediction

International Winter Wheat Improvement Program: history, activities, impact and future
(Higher Education Press, 2019)
International Winter Wheat Improvement Program (IWWIP) was established in 1986 between the Government of Turkey and CIMMYT with three main objectives: (1) develop winter/facultative germplasm for Central and West Asia, (2) ...
Genetic dissection of drought and heat‐responsive agronomic traits in wheat
(John Wiley & Sons, 2019)
High yield and wide adaptation are principal targets of wheat breeding but are hindered by limited knowledge on genetic basis of agronomic traits and abiotic stress tolerances. In this study, 277 wheat accessions were ...
Phenotyping for abiotic stress tolerance in maize low nitrogen stress: a field manual
Poor soil fertility is one of the primary constraints to maize production in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) where most of the farming land is heavily depleted of nitrogen (N) as a result of repeated crop cultivation over several ...
The humanitarian use of Ms44 in Africa
Genetic analysis of tropical quality protein maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important source of carbohydrates and protein in the diet in sub-Saharan Africa. The objectives of this study were to (i) estimate general (GCA) and specific combining abilities (SCA) of 13 new ...
