Genetic effects for maize traits in acid and non-acid soils
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2008)
Breeding programs for acid-soil tolerance are desirable as a relatively inexpensive and permanent way for increasing maize (Zea mays L.) yield on these soils. Our objective was to compare the genetic effects controlling ...
Inbred line evaluation nurseries and their role in maize breeding at CIMMYT

CIMMYT initiated its hybrid maize (Zea mays) research programme in 1985 in response to the growing needs of the national programmes for hybrid-oriented source germplasm. Since 1991 CIMMYT has released a total of 424 inbreds ...
Heterotic patterns of ninety-two white tropical CIMMYT maize lines
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 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 ...
