A regional analysis of maize biological diversity in Southeastern Guanajuato, Mexico
Four environments with contrasting potential for agricultural productivity and infrastructure development were identified in Guanajuato State, Mexico, to test hypotheses about the relationship of maize biological diversity ...
Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
Effectiveness of selection at CIMMYT's main maize breeding sites in Mexico for performance at sites in Africa and vice versa
The exchange of elite breeding materials across regions is an important way in which multinational maize breeding programmes access new genetic variation, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Our objectives were to examine ...
Characterization of genetic diversity of puroindoline genes in Mexican wheat landraces
Grain hardness is a major factor determining milling performance of common wheat. It determines the amount of damaged starch generated during milling, and therefore the end use of a given variety. One hundred and two lines ...
The private and public characteristics of maize land races and the area allocation decisions of farmers in a center of crop diversity
This study uses an approach derived from models of the private and public characteristics of goods to illustrate (1) the overriding importance of variety attributes in farmers' decisions to allocate area among varieties ...
Characterization of Mexican Creole wheat landraces in relation to morphological characteristics and HMW glutenin subunit composition
One hundred lines derived from 14 wheat landraces collected in Mexico were characterized in relation to spike and grain morphology and HMW-glutenin subunit composition. Up to seven botanical varieties were identified among ...
