Genetic analyses and association studies of yield components and kernel sugar concentration in sweet corn
A set of sweet corn genotypes generated using line × tester (7 × 3) mating design, were evaluated at two locations (Hyderabad and Delhi) for estimating combining ability and heterosis of the genotypes and degree of association ...
Phenotypic and molecular diversity of maize landraces: characterization and utilization
A well-characterized and well-evaluated germplasm collection would have greater chances of contributing to the development of new varieties, and consequently, greater realization of benefits for the resource-poor farmers. ...
Phenotypic evaluation of a set of selected exotic maize inbred lines for drought stress tolerance
Increased rainfall variability accentuated by climate change will have severe effects on production of maize which is grown predominantly as a rainfed crop in India. A set of 31 exotic inbred lines were analysed under both ...

Genetic variability and genotype x environment interactions for kernel iron and zinc concentrations in maize (Zea mays) genotypes
Micronutrient enrichment in the major staple food crops is an important breeding goal in view of the extensive problem of 'hidden hunger' caused by micronutrient malnutrition. Kernel iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) concentrations ...
Genetic variability and stability for kernel iron and zinc concentration in maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes
Evaluation of kernel iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) of 67 diverse maize genotypes grown during 2006?08 indicated significant variation for both the micronutrients. Kernel Fe concentration during 2006 varied from 20.38?43.79 mg/kg, ...
Genetic variability for kernel B-carotene and utilization of crtRB1 3'TE gene for biofortification in maize (Zea mays L.)
Carotenoids are the major sources of dietary precursor of vitamin A and act as potential antioxidant besides preventing diseases such as night blindness in humans. Vitamin A deficiency is a global problem, but is particularly ...
QTL mapping in three tropical maize populations reveals a set of constitutive and adaptive genomic regions for drought tolerance
(Springer Verlag, 2012)
Despite numerous published reports of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for drought-related traits, practical applications of such QTL in maize improvement are scarce. Identifying QTL of sizeable effects that express more or ...
옥수수 육종에 배가반수체기술의 이용 : 이론과 실제

Analysis of genetic variability for kernel carotenoid concentration in selected maize inbred lines
A selected set of 24 maize (Zea mays L.) inbred lines were analyzed to study genetic variability for total kernel carotenoid concentration. The results revealed significant genetic variation among the selected maize inbreds ...
