Identificacion de areas potenciales en Mexico para la intervencion con maiz biofortificado con zinc = Identification of potential areas in Mexico for intervention with biofortified high-zinc maize
Malnutrition is a problem that affects human growth, development and general health, particularly on children under 5 years of age and pregnant women. In Mexico, low weight and height statistics reveal a decrease of 8 and ...
Identification of QTL for early vigor and Stay-Green conferring tolerance to drought in two connected advanced backcross populations in Tropical Maize (Zea mays L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
We aimed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for secondary traits related to grain yield (GY) in two BC1F2:3 backcross populations (LPSpop and DTPpop) under well-watered (4 environments; WW) and drought stressed (6; ...

Conservation agriculture in southern Africa: advances in knowledge
(Cambridge University Press, 2015)
The increasing demand for food from limited available land, in light of declining soil fertility and future threats of climate variability and change have increased the need for more sustainable crop management systems. ...
Introgression of the crtRB1 gene into quality protein maize inbred lines using molecular markers
(Springer; Springer Nature, 2015)
Quality protein maize (QPM; Zea mays L.) has effectively enhanced levels of the amino acids, lysine, and tryptophan, over normal maize and provided balanced dietary protein for the health and development of monogastric ...
Exogenous Pi supplementation improved the salt tolerance of maize (Zea mays L.) by promoting Na+ exclusion
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
The mechanism of phosphate (Pi)-mediated salt tolerance in maize is poorly understood. In this study, the effects of Pi (H2PO4-) on the salt tolerance of two contrasting genotypes was investigated in a pot experiment. We ...
Weather risk : how does it change the yield benefits of nitrogen fertilizer and improved maize varieties in sub‐Saharan Africa?
The purpose of this research was to explore how weather risk affects the value of nitrogen fertilizer use and improved seed variety adoption to sub‐Saharan African (SSA) maize farmers. It contributes to the literature by ...
Identification of candidate genes for drought tolerance by whole-genome resequencing in maize
(Springer Nature; BMC, 2014)
Drought stress is one of the major limiting factors for maize production. With the availability of maize B73 reference genome and whole-genome resequencing of 15 maize inbreds, common variants (CV) and clustering analyses ...
A hierarchical bayesian estimation model for multienvironment plant breeding trials in successive years
(Crop Science Society of America, 2016)
In agriculture and plant breeding, multienvironment trials over multiple years are conducted to evaluate and predict genotypic performance under different environmental conditions and to analyze, study, and interpret ...
