Potassium supplying capacity of diverse soils and K-use efficiency of maize in South Asia
Increased nutrient withdrawal by rapidly expanding intensive cropping systems, in combination with imbalanced fertilization, is leading to potassium (K) depletion from agricultural soils in Asia. There is an urgent need ...
Evaluation of grain yield of heat stress resilient maize hybrids in Nepal
(International Journal of Applied Sciences and Biotechnology, 2017)
Midhills, foot hills and river basin areas of are generally under spring maize cultivation. These areas along with the areas from Terai and Inner Terai where spring and early summer maize are grown are the most affected ...
Evaluating the performance of different commercial and pre-commercial maize varieties under low nitrogen conditions using affordable phenotyping tools
Maize is the most commonly cultivated cereal in Africa in terms of land area and production. Low yields in this region are very often associated with issues related to low Nitrogen (N), such as low soil fertility or low ...
Development and characterization of simple sequence repeat markers providing genome-wide coverage and high resolution in maize
(Oxford University Press; Kazusa DNA Research Institute, 2013)
Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) have been widely used in maize genetics and breeding, because they are co-dominant, easy to score, and highly abundant. In this study, we used whole-genome sequences from 16 maize inbreds and ...
Choosing the right open-pollinated maize in Southern Africa
Genomic regions associated with root traits under drought stress in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
An association mapping panel, named as CIMMYT Asia association mapping (CAAM) panel, involving 396 diverse tropical maize lines were phenotyped for various structural and functional traits of roots under drought and ...
Impact of adoption of drought-tolerant maize varieties on total maize production in south Eastern Zimbabwe
(Taylor & Francis, 2019)
Drought is a huge limiting factor in maize production, mainly in the rain-fed agriculture of sub-Saharan Africa. In response to this threat, drought-tolerant (DT) maize varieties have been developed with an aim to ensure ...
