Genetic diversity among tropical provitamin A maize inbred lines and implications for a biofortification program
(Cereal Research Non-Profit Company, 2019)
Characterization of maize germplasm grown in Eastern and Southern Africa : results of the 2004 regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT
The Summary Tables present grain yields averaged across sites with significant differences between entries, for each of the five to six environments. Data on agronomic performance such as anthesis date, plant and ear height, ...
Grain yield performance and flowering synchrony of CIMMYT’s tropical maize (Zea mays L.) parental inbred lines and single crosses
Maize production constraints in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are being addressed by CIMMYT and partners through an array of projects, focusing on developing and evaluating parental inbred lines and single-crosses as well as ...
Genetic variation and population structure of maize inbred lines adapted to the mid-altitude sub-humid maize agro-ecology of Ethiopia using single nucleotide polymorphic (SNP) markers
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Background Molecular characterization is important for efficient utilization of germplasm and development of improved varieties. In the present study, we investigated the genetic purity, relatedness and population structure ...
Combining ability of maize (Zea mays L.) inbred lines resistant to stem borers
Ten inbred parents with varying resistance levels to Chilo partellus and Busseola fusca were crossed in a half diallel mating scheme to generate 45 F1 hybrids. The hybrids and five commercial checks were evaluated across ...
Inbred line evaluation nurseries and their role in maize breeding at CIMMYT
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 1999)
CIMMYT initiated its hybrid maize (Zea mays) research programme in 1985 in response to the growing needs of the national programmes for hybrid-oriented source germplasm. Since 1991 CIMMYT has released a total of 424 inbreds ...
Morpho-physiological traits associated with variable field performance of different types maize germplasm across multiple environments
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 2003)
Field performance of maize varies substantially among various types of germplasm, such as- hybrids, inbred lines, and often with open pollinated varieties (OPVs). Variations in per se performance is better realized under ...
