Suwan-1 : maize from Thailand to the world
Comparison of the performance of synthetic maize varieties created based on either genetic distance or general combining ability of the parents
Synthetics varieties are grown by farmers and used by breeders to select new inbred lines. In countries unable to market hybrids, use of synthetics leads to yield improvements over landraces. Synthetics are derived from ...
Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) assessment of Delta18O and nitrogen and ash contents for improved yield potential and drought adaptation in maize
The oxygen isotope composition (ä18O), accumulation of minerals (ash content), and nitrogen (N) content in plant tissues have been recently proposed as useful integrative physiological criteria associated with yield potential ...
Identificacion de areas potenciales en Mexico para la intervencion con maiz biofortificado con zinc = Identification of potential areas in Mexico for intervention with biofortified high-zinc maize
Malnutrition is a problem that affects human growth, development and general health, particularly on children under 5 years of age and pregnant women. In Mexico, low weight and height statistics reveal a decrease of 8 and ...
Simple sequence repeats markers for grain filling traits and yield components in tropical maize
Probiotics has gained momentum only recently with considerable and significant advances in functional and health food market across the world. The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Consultation on Evaluation of Health and Nutritional ...
Dissection of a major QTL qhir1 conferring maternal haploidinduction ability in maize
(Springer-Verlag Heidelberg, 2017)
In vivo haploid induction in maize can be triggered in high frequencies by pollination with special genetic stocks called haploid inducers. Several genetic studies with segregating populations from non-inducer x inducer ...
Carotenoid retention in biofortified maize using different post-harvest storage and packaging methods
Orange maize is being promoted as a source of provitamin A carotenoids (pVAC) in Zambia. Carotenoid retention in orange maize grains stored in metal silos, multilayer polyethylene and common woven bags, and maize meal ...
Grain yield performance and flowering synchrony of CIMMYT’s tropical maize (Zea mays L.) parental inbred lines and single crosses
Maize production constraints in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are being addressed by CIMMYT and partners through an array of projects, focusing on developing and evaluating parental inbred lines and single-crosses as well as ...
CIMMYT Maize International Testing Program : 1985 Preliminary Report
This preliminary report summarizes data received from December 16, 1985 to August 15, 1986, for the various trials in CIMMYT's International Maize Testing Program, including the International Progeny Testing Trials (IPTT), ...
