Determination of levels of Striga germination Stimulants for maize gene bank accessions and elite inbred lines
Parasitism by Striga hermonthica (Del) Benth is a severe constraint in maize production in sub-Saharan Africa. Varying levels of tolerance to Striga attack have been identified and exploited in breeding programs of several ...
Opportunities for managing rice-fallow systems with conservation agriculture technologies
Conservation Agriculture (CA) -based technologies are based on the principles of drastic reduction in tillage) retaining adequate crop residues and diversified rotations. CA practices improve resource use efficiency and ...
Manual de determinación de rendimiento

Behaviour of Quality Protein Maize (QPM) genotypes under well irrigated and water stress conditions in subtropical climate
(Consiglio per la ricerca in agricoltura e l'analisi dell'economia agraria, Forestry Reaserch Centre; Istituto Sperimentale per la Cerealicoltura, 2012)
Drought or water stress is one of the prime problems affecting production of maize at global level. A major ob¬jective of QPM breeding programs in semi arid tropics or subtropical climatic conditions is to increase genetic ...
Conservation agriculture systems for Malawian smallholder farmers: long term effects on crop productivity, profitability and soil quality
(Cambridge University Press, 2012)
Conservation agriculture (CA) systems are based upon minimal soil disturbance; crop residue retention and crop rotation and/or intercrop association are increasingly seen to recycle nutrients, increase yield and reduce ...
Conservation agriculture for small holder rainfed farming: Opportunities and constraints of new mechanized seeding systems
Small holder farmers in rainfed agriculture believe that soil tillage is needed to maximize crop yields. However, as cropping intensity, and hence tillage intensity, increases there may be a decline in particular physical, ...
Development of the conservation agriculture equipment industry in Sub-saharan Africa
Smallholder farmers in many sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries are limited by farm power shortages. One way of reducing the constraint, and also the negative impacts of conventional tillage (with hoe and plow), is to ...
