Factors affecting the accuracy of genotype imputation in populations from several maize breeding programs
Genomic selection and association mapping offer great potential to increase rates of genetic progress in plants. The prediction of genomic breeding values usually requires that missing genotypes be imputed because a ...
Identification of drought, heat, and combined drought and heat tolerant donors in maize
Low maize (Zea maysL.) yields and the impacts of climate change on maize production highlight the need to improve yields in eastern and southern Africa. Climate projections suggest higher temperatures within drought-prone ...
Grain yield and stability of white early maize hybrids in the highland valleys of Mexico
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
There is great interest in Mexico in reducing imports of grain and becoming self-sufficient in cereal production. Identifying high-yielding and stable maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids from different research institutions could ...
