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 ...
Combining ability and heterotic orientation of mid-altitude sub-humid tropical maize inbred lines for grain yield and related traits
(Academic Journals, 2017)
Information on the combining ability and heterotic pattern of elite inbred lines is essential to maximize their use in hybrid maize development. This study was conducted to determine combining ability and heterotic pattern ...
Maize (Zea mays L.) genome size indicated by 180-bp knob abundance is associated with flowering time
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Flowering time is considered one of the most important agronomic traits in maize (Zea mays L.), and previous studies have indicated that this trait is correlated with genome size. We observed a significant difference in ...
Analyzing the variability and genotype x season interaction to assess the biological homeostasis in yellow maize (Zea Mays L.) germplasm using advanced biometrical inferences
(Pakistan Botanical Society, 2017)
Yellow maize is grown in autumn and spring seasons and prevailing in both dent and flint types. High yield with stable performance of yellow maize genotypes across these seasons is desire of local farmers. Total 150 yellow ...
Conservation agriculture as a sustainable option for the central Mexican highlands
Tropical highlands of the world are densely populated and intensively cropped. Agricultural sustainability problems resulting from soil erosion and fertility decline have arisen all over this agro-ecological zone. Based ...
Influence of permanent raised bed planting and residue management on physical and chemical soil quality in rain fed maize/wheat systems
Densely populated, intensively cropped highland areas in the tropics and subtropics are prone to erosion and declining soil fertility, making agriculture unsustainable. Conservation agriculture in its version of permanent ...
