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 ...
Use of genomic estimated breeding values results in rapid genetic gains for drought tolerance in maize
More than 80% of the 19 million ha of maize (Zea mays L.) in tropical Asia is rainfed and prone to drought. The breeding methods for improving drought tolerance (DT), including genomic selection (GS), are geared to ...
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 ...
