Quality Assurance/ Quality Control (QA/QC) in maize breeding and seed production : theory and practice
This technical manual introduces the theory and practice of Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) of seed quality in maize breeding and seed production. It focuses mainly on the genetic quality related issues of the ...
Resistance of Bt-maize (MON810) against the stem borers Busseola fusca (Fuller) and Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) and its yield performance in Kenya
A study was conducted to assess the performance of maize hybrids with Bt event MON810 (Bt-hybrids) against the maize stem borer Busseola fusca (Fuller) in a biosafety greenhouse (BGH) and against the spotted stem borer ...
Guidelines for the quality control of Quality Protein Maize (QPM) seed and grain
(CGIAR; CIMMYT, 2016)
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 ...
Diagnostics and management of maize lethal necrosis
Genetic diversity and population structure of native maize populations in Latin America and the Caribbean
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
This study describes the genetic diversity and population structure of 194 native maize populations from 23 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. The germplasm, representing 131 distinct landraces, was genetically ...
High-throughput phenotyping of canopy cover and senescence in maize field trials using aerial digital canopy imaging
In the crop breeding process, the use of data collection methods that allow reliable assessment of crop adaptation traits, faster and cheaper than those currently in use, can significantly improve resource use efficiency ...
