Detection of genetic integrity of conserved maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm in genebanks using SNP markers
Twenty maize landrace accessions regenerated and conserved in five maize genebanks were investigated for genetic integrity using 1,150 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and 235 SNP haplotypes. The genetic diversity ...
Methodological approach for predicting and mapping the phenological adaptation of tropical maize (Zea mays L.) using multi-environment trials
(BioMed Central; BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: The phenological development of the maize crop from emergence through flowering to maturity, usually expressed as a rate (i.e. 1/duration), is largely controlled by temperature in the tropics. Maize plant ...
Combining ability and heterosis in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) under heat stress
(Society of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry; 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 ...

Preferences and constraints of maize farmers in the development and adoption of improved varieties in the mid-altitude, sub-humid agro-ecology of Western Ethiopia
Understanding farmers' production constraints and preferences is important in maize breeding, especially underlying successful adoption of improved varieties and their production packages. This study was conducted to assess ...
Stability for grain yield and other traits in tropical maize (Zea mays L.) under heat stress and optimal conditions
(Excellent Publishers; 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 ...
Combining ability and heterotic orientation of mid-altitude sub-humid tropical maize inbred lines for grain yield and related traits
(Academic Journals, 2017)
Information on the combining ability and heterotic pattern of elite inbred lines is essential to maximize their use in hybrid maize development. This study was conducted to determine combining ability and heterotic pattern ...
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 ...
Diversidad genetica en maices nativos mexicanos tropicales
Mexico is considered the center of origin and domestication of maize (Zea mays L.), and it is recognized as one of the most important centers of diversity. Evaluation of native maize diversity is specially important for ...
