Effect of different mulching materials on maize growth and yield in conservation agriculture systems of sub-humid Zimbabwe
(AIMS Press, 2016)
The introduction of conservation agriculture (CA) for smallholders increased the competition for crop residues between crop and livestock enterprises of the mixed smallholder farming system. Smallholders practicing CA have ...
Hyperspectral reflectance as a tool to measure biochemical and physiological traits in wheat
(Society for Experimental Biology, 2017)
Improving photosynthesis to raise wheat yield potential has emerged as a major target for wheat physiologists. Photosynthesis-related traits, such as nitrogen per unit leaf area (Narea) and leaf dry mass per area (LMA), ...
Development of cost effective small No-till seeder for two wheel tractor in Bangladesh
(Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, 2017)
Two wheel tractor (Power tiller) is the common means of soil tillage and other farm operations in Bangladesh due to easy access in fragmented land size with affordable price. A low cost and small robust 2WT driven (12 hp) ...
Characterization and mapping of Leaf Rust and Stripe Rust resistance loci in hexaploid wheat lines UC1110 and PI610750 under Mexican environments
Growing resistant wheat varieties is a key method of minimizing the extent of yield losses caused by the globally important wheat leaf rust (LR) and stripe rust (YR) diseases. In this study, a population of 186 F8 recombinant ...
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 ...
Definition of the low molecular weight glutenin subunit gene family members in a set of standard bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) are a class of seed storage proteins that play a major role in the determination of the viscoelastic properties of wheat dough. The LMW-GSs are encoded by multi-gene families ...
Fast-forwarding genetic gain
Speed breeding’ enables scientists to exploit gene bank accessions and mutant collections for an unparalleled rapid gene discovery and gene deployment. Combining speed breeding and other leading-edge plant breeding ...
The adaptive capacity of maize-based conservation agriculture systems to climate stress in tropical and subtropical environments : a meta-regression of yields
Conservation agriculture is widely promoted across sub-Saharan Africa as a sustainable farming practice that enhances adaptive capacity to climate change. The interactions between climate stress, management, and soil are ...
