Nonlinear heat effects on African maize as evidenced by historical yield trials
New approaches are needed to accelerate understanding of climate impacts on crop yields, particularly in tropical regions. Past studies have relied mainly on crop-simulation models1, 2 or statistical analyses based on ...
Evaluation of early to medium maturing open pollinated maize varieties in SADC region using GGE biplot based on the SREG model
Analysis of multi-environment trials (METs) of genotypes (G) and genotype × environment (GE) interactions for yield performance across environments, and selection of the best genotypes is an important routine in maize ...
Relative importance of general combining ability and specific combining ability among tropical maize (zea mays l.) inbreds under contrasting nitrogen environments
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 2008)
Low-N stress is among the major abiotic stresses causing yield reductions in maize grown in the mid-altitude tropical environments of Africa. This study estimates the relative importance of general combining ability (GCA) ...
Breeding for improved abiotic stress tolerance in maize adapted to southern Africa
The difficulty of choosing appropriate selection environments has restricted breeding progress for abiotic stress tolerance in highly variable target environments. Genotype-by-environment interactions in southern African ...
