Genetic diversity, linkage disequilibrium and population structure among CIMMYT maize inbred lines, selected for heat tolerance study
(Istituto Sperimentale per la Cerealicoltura, 2016)
Addressing climate change effects and meeting maize demand for Asia
This includes the extended summaries of the scientific presentations made during the 11th Asian Maize Conference held in Nanning, China, during 7-11 November 2011. The Conference is co-organized by the International Maize ...
Use of genomic estimated breeding values results in rapid genetic gains for drought tolerance in maize
More than 80% of the 19 million ha of maize (Zea mays L.) in tropical Asia is rainfed and prone to drought. The breeding methods for improving drought tolerance (DT), including genomic selection (GS), are geared to ...
Potential benefits of drought and heat tolerance for adapting maize to climate change in tropical environments
Climate change and population growth pose great challenges to the food security of the millions of people who grow maize in the already fragile agricultural systems in tropical environments. There is an urgent need for ...
Genetic analysis of heat adaptive traits in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Excellent Publishers (Regd.), 2017)
Studies were conducted to determine the gene action for heat adaptive traits and grain yield under heat stress condition by using the hybrids generated in L×T and NCD-II. The results revealed predominance of non-additive ...
Genome-wide association study in Asia-adapted tropical maize reveals novel and explored genomic regions for sorghum downy mildew resistance
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Globally, downy mildews are among the important foliar diseases of maize that cause significant yield losses. We conducted a genome-wide association study for sorghum downy mildew (SDM; Peronosclerospora sorghi) resistance ...
Combining ability and heterosis for heat stress tolerance in maize (Zea may L.)
(Editorial Team, 2017)
Field experiments were conducted to estimate the combining ability and heterotic effects of maize hybrids under heat stress condition during summer (mid-March to June). The s2 GCA/ s2 SCA was less than unity for all ...
