Genetic diversity among selected elite CIMMYT maize hybrids in East and Southern Africa
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
Genetic gain within the CIMMYT Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) hybrid maize (Zea mays L.) breeding program from 2000 to 2010 was recently estimated at 0.85 to 2.2% yr−1 under various environmental conditions. Over 100 ...
Incorporation of elite subtropical and tropical maize germplasm into elite temperate germplasm
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2006)
Elite germplasm and adequate genetic variation are essential in successful plant breeding programs.Maize (Zea mays L.) breeding programs in the U.S. Corn Belt have realized significant genetic advance with a limited sample ...
Morpho-physiological traits associated with variable field performance of different types maize germplasm across multiple environments
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2003)
Field performance of maize varies substantially among various types of germplasm, such as- hybrids, inbred lines, and often with open pollinated varieties (OPVs). Variations in per se performance is better realized under ...

Genetic analysis of tropical quality protein maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important source of carbohydrates and protein in the diet in sub-Saharan Africa. The objectives of this study were to (i) estimate general (GCA) and specific combining abilities (SCA) of 13 new ...
Rapid breeding and varietal replacement are critical to adaptation of cropping systems in the developing world to climate change
Plant breeding is a key mechanism for adaptation of cropping systems to climate change. Much discussion of breeding for climate change focuses on genes with large effects on heat and drought tolerance, but phenology and ...
Evaluation of CIMMYT drought tolerant maize germplasm for resistance to weevil (Sitophilus zeamais Motschulky) damage
(Academic Journals, 2015)
This study was carried out to evaluate and assess the phenotypic correlation between the primary and secondary weevil resistant traits of 20 drought tolerant (DT) late maturing maize hybrids (LHYB) to weevil (Sitophilus ...
