Exploiting modified single crosses in maize (Zea mays L.) to facilitate hybrid use in developing countries
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2009)
A three-phase study was led by CIMMYT during 1996-99 to assess the usefulness of modified single-cross hybrids to accelerate the adoption of maize hybrids by farmers in developing countries. During Phase I, we evaluated ...
Relationship between line per se and cross performance under low nitrogen fertility in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2003)
Improved maize yields under low nitrogen (N) fertility is desired for both low- input production systems and also for judicious application of fertilizer nitrogen for a sustainable and environment friendly production ...
