Genetic interrelationships among medium to late maturing tropical maize inbred lines using selected SSR markers
Understanding the genetic relationships among breeding lines is fundamental in crop improvement programs. The objectives of this study were to apply selected polymorphic single sequence repeat (SSR) DNA markers and cluster ...
Gene action determining Phaeosphaeria leaf spot disease resistance in experimental maize hybrids
Phaeosphaeria leaf spot (Phaeosphaeria maydis Henn.) has the potential to cause substantial yield losses in maize. Maize is grown by small-scale farmers without fungicides; hence there is need to breed for resistance in ...
