Effects of varieties and nitrogen fertilizer on yield and yield components of maize on farmers field in mid altitude areas of western Ethiopia
Yield of maize hybrids could be low when grown below optimum management practices. Use of improved varieties and optimum nitrogen fertilizer application practices are unlocking the high yielding potential of hybrids maize. ...
A hierarchical bayesian estimation model for multienvironment plant breeding trials in successive years
(Crop Science Society of America, 2016)
In agriculture and plant breeding, multienvironment trials over multiple years are conducted to evaluate and predict genotypic performance under different environmental conditions and to analyze, study, and interpret ...
QTL Mapping for gray leaf spot resistance in a tropical maize population
(American Phytopathological Society, 2016)
A tropical gray leaf spot (GLS)-resistant line, YML 32, was crossed to a temperate GLS-susceptible line, Ye 478, to produce an F2:3 population for the identification of quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with resistance ...
Exogenous Pi supplementation improved the salt tolerance of maize (Zea mays L.) by promoting Na+ exclusion
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
The mechanism of phosphate (Pi)-mediated salt tolerance in maize is poorly understood. In this study, the effects of Pi (H2PO4-) on the salt tolerance of two contrasting genotypes was investigated in a pot experiment. We ...
Conservation agriculture in southern Africa: advances in knowledge
(Cambridge University Press, 2015)
The increasing demand for food from limited available land, in light of declining soil fertility and future threats of climate variability and change have increased the need for more sustainable crop management systems. ...
Methodological approach for predicting and mapping the phenological adaptation of tropical maize (Zea mays L.) using multi-environment trials
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: The phenological development of the maize crop from emergence through flowering to maturity, usually expressed as a rate (i.e. 1/duration), is largely controlled by temperature in the tropics. Maize plant ...
Genome‑wide association and genomic prediction of resistance to maize lethal necrosis disease in tropical maize germplasm
(Springer Verlag, 2015)
The maize lethal necrosis disease (MLND) caused by synergistic interaction of Maize chlorotic mottle virus and Sugarcane mosaic virus, and has emerged as a serious threat to maize production in eastern Africa since 2011. ...
Stability for grain yield and other traits in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) under heat stress and optimal conditions
(Excellent Publishers, 2018)
Twenty four newly developed maize hybrids along with three commercial checks were evaluated for their yield performance at three locations under heat stress and optimal conditions. Pooled analysis of variance revealed ...
