Combining ability and heterosis in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) under heat stress
(Society of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry, 2018)
Maize cultivars tolerant to heat stress could play a pivotal role in adapting to the intermittent high temperature at critical growth stages and cope-up with climate-change induced high temperature spells. Field experiments ...
Stability for grain yield and other traits in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) under heat stress and optimal conditions
(Excellent Publishers, 2018)
Twenty four newly developed maize hybrids along with three commercial checks were evaluated for their yield performance at three locations under heat stress and optimal conditions. Pooled analysis of variance revealed ...
QTL Mapping of Agronomic Waterlogging Tolerance Using Recombinant Inbred Lines Derived from Tropical Maize (Zea mays L) Germplasm
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Waterlogging is an important abiotic stress constraint that causes significant yield losses in maize grown throughout south and south-east Asia due to erratic rainfall patterns. The most economic option to offset the ...
Proceedings of the eighth asian regional maize workshop : new technologies for the new millennium
This is the proceedings of the Eighth Asian Regional Maize Workshop, held in Bangkok, Thailand, during 5-8 August 2002, and co-sponsored by International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, the Department of Agriculture ...
Morpho-physiological traits associated with cold stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
Winter season maize (Zea mays L.) has emerged a new crop in many parts of South and Southeast Asia, where the crop has to face low temperature regimes (<5°C) for few weeks during vegetative growth stage. The objective of ...
Relationship between drought and excess moisture tolerance in maize (Zea mays L.)
Maize crops grown during summer-rainy season in Asian tropics are prone to face both drought and excess moisture stress due uneven distribution patterns of monsoon rains in the region. We attempted to identify the relationship ...
Combining ability and heterosis for heat stress tolerance in maize (Zea may L.)
(Editorial Team, 2017)
Field experiments were conducted to estimate the combining ability and heterotic effects of maize hybrids under heat stress condition during summer (mid-March to June). The s2 GCA/ s2 SCA was less than unity for all ...
Genetic analysis of heat adaptive traits in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Excellent Publishers (Regd.), 2017)
Studies were conducted to determine the gene action for heat adaptive traits and grain yield under heat stress condition by using the hybrids generated in L×T and NCD-II. The results revealed predominance of non-additive ...
