This study reviews socioeconomic and technical factors that affect the adoption of improved maize and fertilizer in the Embu District, Kenya and the role of credit in both. A total of 127 farmers (82 adopters and 45 ...
Molecular characterization of diverse CIMMYT maize inbred lines from eastern and southern Africa using single nucleotide polymorphic markers
(BioMed Central, 2012)
Background: Knowledge of germplasm diversity and relationships among elite breeding materials is fundamentally important in crop improvement. We genotyped 450 maize inbred lines developed and/or widely used by CIMMYT ...
Determination of levels of Striga germination Stimulants for maize gene bank accessions and elite inbred lines
(Gorgan University of Agricultural Sciences, 2012)
Parasitism by Striga hermonthica (Del) Benth is a severe constraint in maize production in sub-Saharan Africa. Varying levels of tolerance to Striga attack have been identified and exploited in breeding programs of several ...
