High-throughput method for ear phenotyping and kernel weight estimation in maize using ear digital imaging
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: Grain yield, ear and kernel attributes can assist to understand the performance of maize plant under different environmental conditions and can be used in the variety development process to address farmer's ...
Evaluating the performance of different commercial and pre-commercial maize varieties under low nitrogen conditions using affordable phenotyping tools
Maize is the most commonly cultivated cereal in Africa in terms of land area and production. Low yields in this region are very often associated with issues related to low Nitrogen (N), such as low soil fertility or low ...
Molecular characterization of CIMMYT maize inbred lines with genotyping-bysequencing SNPs
Key message Molecular characterization information on genetic diversity, population structure and genetic relationships provided by this research will help maize breeders to better understand how to utilize the current CML ...
Combining ability and testcross performance of drought-tolerant maize inbred lines under stress and non-stress environments in Kenya
(Blackwell Science Ltd, 2017)
Drought and poor soil fertility are among the major abiotic stresses affecting maize productivity in sub-Saharan Africa. Maize breeding efforts at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) have focused ...
Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia
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 ...
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 ...
Gene flow among different teosinte taxa and into the domesticated maize gene pool
Maize (Zea mays L. ssp. mays) was domesticated from one wild species ancestor, the Balsas teosinte (Zea mays ssp. parviglumis) about 9000 years ago. Higher levels of gene diversity are found in teosinte taxa compared to ...
Diversity in global maize germplasm: Characterization and utilization
Maize (Zea mays L.) is not only of worldwide importance as a food, feed and as a source of diverse industrially important products, but is also a model genetic organism with immense genetic diversity. Although it was first ...
Quality control genotyping for assessment of genetic identity and purity in diverse tropical maize inbred lines
Quality control (QC) genotyping is an important component in breeding, but to our knowledge there are not well established protocols for its implementation in practical breeding programs. The objectives of our study were ...
