Dissection of a major QTL qhir1 conferring maternal haploidinduction ability in maize
(Springer-Verlag Heidelberg, 2017)
In vivo haploid induction in maize can be triggered in high frequencies by pollination with special genetic stocks called haploid inducers. Several genetic studies with segregating populations from non-inducer x inducer ...
High-throughput phenotyping of canopy cover and senescence in maize field trials using aerial digital canopy imaging
In the crop breeding process, the use of data collection methods that allow reliable assessment of crop adaptation traits, faster and cheaper than those currently in use, can significantly improve resource use efficiency ...
Hybrids performance of doubled haploid lines derived from 10 tropical bi-parental maize populations evaluated in contrasting environments in Kenya
(Academic Journals, 2017)
The doubled haploid (DH) technology enables maize breeders to develop a large number of homozygous lines rapidly and test them in hybrid combinations early in the breeding cycle. The objectives of this study were to evaluate ...
Discovery and validation of genomic regions associated with resistance to maize lethal necrosis in four biparental populations
In sub-Saharan Africa, maize is the key determinant of food security for smallholder farmers. The sudden outbreak of maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease is seriously threatening the maize production in the region. Understanding ...
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 ...
