Molecular characterization of diverse CIMMYT maize inbred lines from eastern and southern Africa using single nucleotide polymorphic markers
(BioMed Central, 2012)
Knowledge of germplasm diversity and relationships among elite breeding materials is fundamentally important in crop improvement. We genotyped 450 maize inbred lines developed and/or widely used by CIMMYT breeding programs ...
Combining ability of early-maturing quality protein maize inbred lines adapted to Eastern Africa
Adapted early-maturing quality protein maize (QPM) hybrids with high grain yield potential in Eastern Africa would benefit maize farmers through increased grain production and subsequently higher income but they are not ...
Assessment of reaction patterns of hybrids to Striga hermonthica (del.) Benth. under artificial infestation in Kenya and Nigeria
Striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth. is a widespread parasitic weed that inflicts damage on maize (Zea mays L.) in sub-Saharan Africa. This is a highly variable root parasite that can contribute to significant genotype × ...
