Heterotic patterns of ninety-two white tropical CIMMYT maize lines
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 1992)
Development of inbread-based populations which are heterotic to each other was considered one of the primary goals when CIMMYT started of this study were to determine the combining ability and heterotica patters of tropical ...
Heterosis and combining ability of CIMMYT's tropical early and intermediate maturity maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 1990)
A 10 parent diallel was formed to determine combining ability and heterotic patterns among CIMMYT'S tropically adapted, early and intermediate maturity maize (Zea mays L.) gene pools and populations. The parents and their ...
Optimal search in ex situ collections of wheat genetic resources
This paper develops a theoretical model for analyzing gene bank management decisions regarding the search for traits of economic value in ex situ collections of wheat. The model is applied to data on the probability of ...
Wheat, barley, and triticale cultivars: a list of publications in which national cereal breeders have noted the cooperation or germplasm they received from CIMMYT
Sustainable cereal production on farmers' fields: that is the ultimate measure of the impact of CIMMYT's research. Its achievement requires a combination of effective technologies and the most appropriate seeds. Over the ...

Gene flow among maize landraces, improved maize varieties, and teosinte: Implications for transgenic maize
Proceedings of a forum organized by the Mexican National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research (INIFAP), the Mexican National Agricultural Biosafety Committee (CNBA), and the International Maize and ...
Maize genetic resources
This publication documents the origin and worldwide spread of maize from Mesoamerica, and describes the characterization, use, and conservation of maize genetic resources, including the crop's nearest wild relatives, ...
The CIMMYT Maize Germplasm Bank: genetic resource preservation, regeneration, maintenance, and use
Originally developed as background information for participants in a 1992 external review of the CIMMYT Maize Germplasm Bank and related activities, this publication recounts CIMMYT's role in the early work of marshalling ...
Wheat genetic resources at CIMMYT: their preservation, enrichment, and distribution
Prior to the late 18th century, agricultural practices were totally dependent on crude handtools, crop landraces, and mixtures of these landraces. Then came the Industrial Revolution with an associated population explosion ...
