Gene action controlling gray leaf spot resistance in southern African maize germplasm
Gray leaf spot disease (GLS; caused by Cercospora zeae-maydis Tehon and Daniels) is among the major maize (Zea mays L.) production constraints in southern Africa. Maize is predominantly grown by small-scale farmers without ...
Gene action controlling grain yield and secondary traits in southern African maize hybrids under drought and non-drought environments
Breeding maize hybrids for drought tolerance would significantly reduce yield loss due to drought in southern Africa. Mode of gene action controlling yield and secondary traits was investigated by mating 27 inbred lines, ...
Gene action determining Phaeosphaeria leaf spot disease resistance in experimental maize hybrids
Phaeosphaeria leaf spot (Phaeosphaeria maydis Henn.) has the potential to cause substantial yield losses in maize. Maize is grown by small-scale farmers without fungicides; hence there is need to breed for resistance in ...
