Maize technology in Malawi : a green revolution in the making?
This case study of technical change in maize production in Malawi seeks to answer the question of whether the diffusion of improved maize seed and fertilizer among Malawian smallholder farmers will create the sharp yield ...
Efficient mass-rearing and infestation techniques to screen for host plant resistance to fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda
One of a three-part series, this bulletin presents techniques developed at CIMMYT and other locations for mass rearing and infestation with the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) for screening and development of maize ...
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 ...

Identification of QTL for early vigor and Stay-Green conferring tolerance to drought in two connected advanced backcross populations in Tropical Maize (Zea mays L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
We aimed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for secondary traits related to grain yield (GY) in two BC1F2:3 backcross populations (LPSpop and DTPpop) under well-watered (4 environments; WW) and drought stressed (6; ...

QTL Mapping of Agronomic Waterlogging Tolerance Using Recombinant Inbred Lines Derived from Tropical Maize (Zea mays L) Germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Waterlogging is an important abiotic stress constraint that causes significant yield losses in maize grown throughout south and south-east Asia due to erratic rainfall patterns. The most economic option to offset the ...
