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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Impacts of international maize breeding research in the developing world, 1966-1990
The impacts of maize breeding research for non-temperate environments in the developing world by national agricultural research systems (NARSs) and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) over 1966-90 ...
World maize facts and trends, CIMMYT Report one: analysis of changes in production, consumption, trade, and prices over the last two decades
CIMMYT's mandate covers two of the world's major cereal crops, maize and wheat. Fifty-three countries of the developing world have over 100,000 hectares sown to maize; these countries represent three-fourths of the popu ...
Managing trials and reporting data for CIMMYT's International Maize Testing Program
This publication provides detailed information and guidelines on trial management and data collection for the various types of trials that make up CIMMYT's international maize testing program. These are distributed to some ...
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 ...
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 ...
