Effectiveness of selection at CIMMYT's main maize breeding sites in Mexico for performance at sites in Africa and vice versa
The exchange of elite breeding materials across regions is an important way in which multinational maize breeding programmes access new genetic variation, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Our objectives were to examine ...
Influence of genotype and environmental adaptation into the maize grain quality traits for nixtamalization
Using tropical and highland pre-commercial hybrids available from Masagro collaborative team, the objectives of this study were (1) to evaluate the influence of genotype and environmental adaptation on grain and tortilla ...
Minor effects of two elicitors of insect and pathogen resistance on volatile emissions and parasitism of Spodoptera frugiperda in Mexican maize fields
Synthetic elicitors can be used to induce resistance in plants against pathogens and arthropod herbivores. Such compounds may also change the emission of herbivore-induced plant volatiles, which serve as important cues for ...
Grain and tortilla quality in landraces and improved maize grown in the Highlands of Mexico
The maize produced in the highlands of Mexico (>2,400 masl) is generally not accepted by the flour and masa and tortilla industry. The objective of this work was to evaluate the grain quality and tortilla properties of ...
Smallholder farmers and maize in Mexico: A value-chain approach to improved targeting of crop-breeding programs
Research on agricultural value chains can identify strategies for farmers to improve their incomes and livelihood security. The trend in such research, however, has often been to focus on making the chains more effective ...
Hibridos trilineales de maiz comunes y de alta calidad de proteina para Veracruz, Mexico
(Universidad de Costa Rica, 2006)
Hibridos trilineales de maiz comunes y de alta calidad de proteina para Veracruz, Mexico. Durante el 2004 se establecieron experimentos en los municipios de Medellin de Bravo, Camaron de Tejeda, Tlalixcoyan y San Andres ...
Grain yield and stability of white early maize hybrids in the highland valleys of Mexico
(Crop Science Society of America, 2017)
There is great interest in Mexico in reducing imports of grain and becoming self-sufficient in cereal production. Identifying high-yielding and stable maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids from different research institutions could ...
Identificacion de areas potenciales en Mexico para la intervencion con maiz biofortificado con zinc = Identification of potential areas in Mexico for intervention with biofortified high-zinc maize
Malnutrition is a problem that affects human growth, development and general health, particularly on children under 5 years of age and pregnant women. In Mexico, low weight and height statistics reveal a decrease of 8 and ...
