CIMMYT Maize International Testing Program 1983 : final report
The 1983 Final Report of the International Maize Testing Program includes trial summaries of data received from February 16 to December 15, 1984. Data from 1983 trials received after December 16, 1984 will be in cluded as ...
Aflatoxin in Maize : a proceedings of the workshop El Batan, Mexico, April 7-11, 1986
(CIMMYT; UNDP; USAID, 1987)
This proceedings includes papers delivered at the Aflatoxin Workshop held at CIMMYT in April, 1986. Contributed papers present background on the aflatoxin problem, studies of toxicoses, sampling and detection methods, ...
Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) assessment of Delta18O and nitrogen and ash contents for improved yield potential and drought adaptation in maize
The oxygen isotope composition (ä18O), accumulation of minerals (ash content), and nitrogen (N) content in plant tissues have been recently proposed as useful integrative physiological criteria associated with yield potential ...
Differential performance and parasitism of caterpillars on maize inbred lines with distinctly different herbivore-induced volatile emissions
Plant volatiles induced by insect feeding are known to attract natural enemies of the herbivores. Six maize inbred lines that showed distinctly different patterns of volatile emission in laboratory assays were planted in ...
Diversity in global maize germplasm: Characterization and utilization
Maize (Zea mays L.) is not only of worldwide importance as a food, feed and as a source of diverse industrially important products, but is also a model genetic organism with immense genetic diversity. Although it was first ...
Genetic gain and cost efficiency of marker-assisted selection of maize for improved resistance to multiple foliar pathogens
Northern corn leaf blight (NCLB) caused by Exserohilum turcicum, gray leaf spot (GLS) caused by Cercospora zeae-maydis and maize streak caused by maize streak Mastrevirus (MSV) are the most destructive foliar diseases ...
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 ...
Effect of source germplasm and season on the in vivo haploid induction rate in tropical maize
For in vivo production of doubled haploid (DH) lines in maize, the rate of haploid induction is of crucial importance. Maternal haploid induction depends primarily on the inducer used as a pollinator. However, the source ...
El desarrollo futuro del maiz y el trigo en el tercer mundo
Dissecting maize productivity: Ideotypes associated with grain yield under drought stress and well-watered conditions
To increase maize (Zea mays L.) yields in drought-prone environments and offset predicted maize yield losses under future climates, the development of improved breeding pipelines using a multi-disciplinary approach is ...
