Maize hybrid seed production manual
Maize hybrid seed provides farmers with varieties containing improved genetics, such as high yield potential and unique trait combinations to counter diseases and adverse growing conditions. However, the quality of hybrid ...
Insect resistant maize recent advances and utilization: proceedings of an international symposium held at (CIMMYT)
This publication reports advances in world wide research on the mechanisms and bases of insect resistance in maize; the genetics of resistance; on the biotechnological manipulation of resistance; on techniques for the mass ...
Effectiveness of Genomic Prediction of Maize Hybrid Performance in Different Breeding Populations and Environments
(Genetics Society of America, 2012)
Genomic prediction is expected to considerably increase genetic gains by increasing selection intensity and accelerating the breeding cycle. In this study, marker effects estimated in 255 diverse maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids ...
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 ...
