Downy mildew resistance in maize (Zea mays L.) across Peronosclerospora species in lowland tropical Asia
Downy mildew (DM) is one of the most destructive diseases of maize in the humid sub-tropical and tropical regions of Asia. The most effective and efficient way of managing losses due to DM is to develop durable host-plant ...
Effects of light environment on maize in hillside agroforestry systems of Nepal
Maize (Zea mays L.) is the most important staple food in the mid-hills region of Nepal. The mid-hills are characterized by steeply sloping land and complex farming systems where crops, livestock and trees are inseparable ...
Comparison of the performance of best linear unbiased estimation and best linear unbiased prediction of genotype effects from zoned Indian maize data
The maize (Zea mays L.) growing area in India is divided into five zones for cultivar testing. During triannual testing of genotypes in official trials within the All-India Coordinated Maize Improvement Program (AICMIP), ...
Genetic variability of tropical maize stover quality and the potential for genetic improvement of food-feed value in India
Sixty elite maize inbred lines were selected from CIMMYT-Asia maize program for stover fodder quality analysis. These lines were selected based on high per se and cross performance across several locations in the Asian ...
Analysis of genetic diversity in the North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) maize landraces of India using microsatellite markers
Population DNA fingerprinting of 48 selected North Eastern Himalayan (NEH) landrace accessions was undertaken using 41 polymorphic fluorescent dye-labelled microsatellite/Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, using a DNA ...
Maize for Asia : emerging trends and technologies proceedings of the 10th Asian Regional Maize Workshop
This is proceeding of the 10th Asian Regional Maize Workshop held in Makassar, Indonesia during 20 - 23 October 2008, and co-organized by International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center CIMMYT), Mexico and The Indonesian ...
Mapping field-scale yield gaps for maize: An example from Bangladesh
Accurate estimation of the size and spatial distribution of the yield gap has many practical applications, including relevance to precision agriculture and technology targeting. The objectives of this study were to illustrate ...
Microsatellite marker-based diversity and population genetic analysis of selected lowland and mid-altitude maize landrace accessions of India
Maize (Zea mays L.) harbours significant genetic diversity not only in its centre of origin (Mexico) but also in several countries worldwide, including India, in the form of landraces. In this study, DNA fingerprinting of ...
