Effects of varieties and nitrogen fertilizer on yield and yield components of maize on farmers field in mid altitude areas of western Ethiopia
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2017)
Yield of maize hybrids could be low when grown below optimum management practices. Use of improved varieties and optimum nitrogen fertilizer application practices are unlocking the high yielding potential of hybrids maize. ...
Grain yield performance and flowering synchrony of CIMMYT’s tropical maize (Zea mays L.) parental inbred lines and single crosses
Maize production constraints in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are being addressed by CIMMYT and partners through an array of projects, focusing on developing and evaluating parental inbred lines and single-crosses as well as ...
CIMMYT’s maize doubled haploid (DH) line development service
Assessment of management options on striga infestation and maize grain yield in Kenya
(Weed Science Society of America, 2018)
The parasitic purple witchweed [Striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth.] is a serious constraint to maize production in sub-Saharan Africa, especially in poor soils. Various Striga spp. control measures have been developed, but ...
Combining ability of yellow lines derived from CIMMYT populations for use in subtropical and tropical midaltitude maize production environments
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2018)
The introduction and utilization of new maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm from sources, such as the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), can be valuable for broadening the genetic base of breeding populations ...
Genotype x environment interaction of quality protein maize hybrids under contrasting management condition in Eastern and Southern Africa
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2019)
Drought and low soil fertility are major abiotic stresses limiting yield of maize (Zea mays L.) in eastern and southern Africa. The present study was undertaken to determine genotype by environment interaction (GEI) and ...
