Relationship between drought and excess moisture tolerance in maize (Zea mays L.)
Maize crops grown during summer-rainy season in Asian tropics are prone to face both drought and excess moisture stress due uneven distribution patterns of monsoon rains in the region. We attempted to identify the relationship ...
Inbred line evaluation nurseries and their role in maize breeding at CIMMYT
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 1999)
CIMMYT initiated its hybrid maize (Zea mays) research programme in 1985 in response to the growing needs of the national programmes for hybrid-oriented source germplasm. Since 1991 CIMMYT has released a total of 424 inbreds ...
Heterotic patterns of ninety-two white tropical CIMMYT maize lines
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 1992)
Development of inbread-based populations which are heterotic to each other was considered one of the primary goals when CIMMYT started of this study were to determine the combining ability and heterotica patters of tropical ...
Efficiency of high-nitrogen selection environments for improving maize for low-nitrogen target environments
Most maize (Zea mays L.) in the tropics is grown under low-nitrogen (N) conditions, raising the need to assess efficient breeding strategies for such conditions. This study assesses the value of low-N vs. high-N selection ...
