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 ...
Molecular characterization of Asian maize inbread lines by multiple laboratories
This study focuses on the standardization of techniques across laboratories to enable multiple datasets to be compared and combined in order to obtain reliable and robust wide-scale patterns of diversity. A set of protocols ...
Performance and profitability study of baby corn and tomato intercropping
Intercropping baby corn and tomato may be an option to improve on-farm income on the resource-poor small farms. An experiment was conducted to examine the effect of tomato intercrop on various traits of baby corn, and to ...
Performance stability of maize genotypes across diverse hill environments in Nepal
The national maize improvement program in Nepal regularly receives elite maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes from CIMMYT and other countries and tests them for their performance stability in highly diverse environments. Studies ...
Performance of quality protein maize genotypes in the warm rainfed hill environments in Nepal
This study was conducted in the hills of Nepal in four years to determine performance stability of open pollinated QPM genotypes in comparison to open pollinated cultivars of normal maize. Replicated field experiments were ...
Implications of hill farmers' agronomic practices in Nepal for crop improvement in maize
(Cambridge University Press, 2004)
An agro-ecological analysis of the maize component of an agroforestry system in the eastern mid-hills of Nepal was conducted in 1999. The aim of the study was to understand farmers' current maize cultivation practices as ...
