Breeding and selection for drought resistance in tropical maize
Throughout the lowland wet tropics, periodic nonprotracted drought caused by irregular rainfall distribution is responsible for sizable reductions in maize yield. This is particularly true when reduced water availability ...
Mejoramiento y seleccion de maiz tropical para incrementar su resistencia a la Sequía
En las zonas tropicales bajas y humedas, las sequias periodicas de corta duracion causadas por una distribucion irregular de las lluvias, son responsables de reducciones importantes en el rendimiento del maiz. Esto es ...
Selection for drought tolerance increases maize yields across a range of nitrogen levels
It is not known whether selection for improved tolerance to a specific abiotic stress leads to correlated changes in performance under other stresses. Drought and N deficiency are important constraints to production in the ...
Breeding for drought and nitrogen stress tolerance in maize : from theory to practice
Targeted initially for maize breeders in sub-Saharan Africa, the content is based on a successful approach developed at CIMMYT for improving the tolerance of maize to drought and low nitrogen stress. Intended as a supplement ...
