Gains in maize genetic improvement in Eastern and Southern Africa : I. CIMMYT hybrid breeding pipeline
Monitoring of genetic gain in crop genetic improvement programs is necessary to measure the efficiency of the program. Periodic measurement of genetic gain also allows the efficiency of new technologies incorporated into ...
Improving maize grain yield under drought stress and non-stress environments in Sub-Saharan Africa using marker-assisted recurrent selection
In marker-assisted recurrent selection (MARS), a subset of molecular markers significantly associated with target traits of interest are used to predict the breeding value of individual plants, followed by rapid recombination ...
Gains in maize genetic improvement in Eastern and Southern Africa : II. CIMMYT open-pollinated variety breeding pipeline
Open-pollinated varieties (OP Vs) still represent a significant proportion of the maize (Zea mays L.) seed system in many countries of sub- Saharan Africa. The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) has ...
Strategies to subdivide a target population of environments: Results from the CIMMYT-led maize hybrid testing programs in Africa
To develop stable and high-yielding maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids for a diverse target population of environments (TPE), breeders have to decide whether greater gains result from selection across the undivided TPE or within ...
