Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
Genomic prediction with pedigree and Genotype X environment interaction in Spring Wheat grown in South and West Asia, North Africa, and Mexico
Developing genomic selection (GS) models is an important step in applying GS to accelerate the rate of genetic gain in grain yield in plant breeding. In this study, seven genomic prediction models under two cross-validation ...
Grain yield and stability of white early maize hybrids in the highland valleys of Mexico
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
There is great interest in Mexico in reducing imports of grain and becoming self-sufficient in cereal production. Identifying high-yielding and stable maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids from different research institutions could ...
Productivity differences and food security : a metafrontier analysis of rain-fed maize farmers in MasAgro in Mexico
(AIMS Press, 2017)
Rain-fed maize production in Mexico includes approximately 6 million hectares which variation in productivity represents huge challenges to meeting the sustainable intensification goals of the Sustainable Modernization of ...
Integration of environmental, agronomic, and economic aspects of fertilizer management
