Combining ability of maize (Zea mays L.) inbred lines resistant to stem borers
Ten inbred parents with varying resistance levels to Chilo partellus and Busseola fusca were crossed in a half diallel mating scheme to generate 45 F1 hybrids. The hybrids and five commercial checks were evaluated across ...
Quality protein maize for the feed industry in Kenya
Quality protein maize (QPM) has increased levels of lysine and tryptophan, limiting amino acids for monogastric animals, so its use in animal feed reduces the need for more expensive high-protein sources. The authors, ...
Genotype by environment interactions and yield stability of stem borer resistant maize hybrids in Kenya
In a maize breeding program, potential genotypes are usually evaluated in different environments before desirable ones are selected. Genotype x environment (G x E) interaction is associated with the differential performance ...
Grain yield, stem borer and disease resistance of new maize hybrids in Kenya
Evaluation of 30 maize hybrids for yield and resistance to stem borers and foliar diseases in four agro-ecologies in Kenya was conducted in 2009. There were significant differences among the hybrids in leaf damage, number ...
Characterization of maize germplasm grown in Eastern and Southern Africa : results of the 2004 regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT
The Summary Tables present grain yields averaged across sites with significant differences between entries, for each of the five to six environments. Data on agronomic performance such as anthesis date, plant and ear height, ...
Adoption of maize production technologies in Northern Tanzania
(SADC; CIMMYT; SACCAR, 1998)
The impact of maize research and extension in Tanzania's Northern Zone during the past 20 years was evaluated through a formal survey in 1995. Data were grouped into two major agroecological zones: the intermediate and the ...
Divergent selection for resistance to maize weevil in six maize populations
Maize weevil (Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky) is an important pest of maize (Zea mays L.) in the tropics, causing serious losses for many resource-poor farmers who store grain on-farm for use as food and seed. This study ...
