Combining ability among twenty insect resistant maize inbred lines resistant to Chilo partellus and Busseola fusca Stem borers
A partial diallel design was used among 20 maize inbred lines to form 110 F1 hybrids to generate information on the values of these lines for developing insect resistant maize varieties during the short rains season of ...
Genetic distance among doubled haploid maize lines and their testcross performance under drought stress and non-stress conditions
In contrast to conventional inbreeding that takes up to seven generations to develop inbred lines, the doubled haploid (DH) technology allows production of inbred lines in two generations. The objectives of the present ...
Testcross performance of doubled haploid maize lines derived from tropical adapted backcross populations
(Consiglio per la ricerca in agricoltura e l'analisi dell'economia agraria, Forestry Reaserch Centre; Istituto Sperimentale per la Cerealicoltura, 2011)
Doubled haploid (DH) lines produced by in vivo induction of maternal haploids are routinely used in maize breeding. The present study was carried out to assess the performance of 75 doubled haploid maize testcrosses and ...
