Molecular characterization of CIMMYT maize inbred lines with genotyping-bysequencing SNPs
Key message Molecular characterization information on genetic diversity, population structure and genetic relationships provided by this research will help maize breeders to better understand how to utilize the current CML ...
Soil and water conservation on Central American hillsides : if more technologies is the answer, what is the question
(AIMS Press, 2016)
Climate change is likely to lead to increased water scarcity in the coming decades and to changes in patterns of precipitation. The result will be more short-term crop failures and long-term production declines. Improved ...
Comparison of the performance of synthetic maize varieties created based on either genetic distance or general combining ability of the parents
Synthetics varieties are grown by farmers and used by breeders to select new inbred lines. In countries unable to market hybrids, use of synthetics leads to yield improvements over landraces. Synthetics are derived from ...
