Quantification of Bt δ-endotoxins in leaf tissues of tropical Bt maize populations
In Kenya, stem borers destroy an estimated 13.5% of farmers' annual maize harvest. Maize transformed using Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) derived genes controls stem borers without negative effects to humans, livestock or the ...
Quality of field collected and laboratory reared Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) for screening maize genotypes
The quality of laboratory reared stem borer species for screening of maize varieties is usually questioned by end user cereal breeders. A quality check study was performed in a screen house at KARI-Katumani to evaluate the ...
Winter wheat genotypes under different levels of nitrogen and water stress: Changes in grain protein compositionQuantification of Bt Delta-endotoxins in leaf tissues of tropical Bt maize populations
Hard white winter wheat with superior and consistent quality is preferable for Asian markets. This study investigated the combined influences of moisture deficit during grain-fill and N management on protein quality, dough ...
Genetic distance among doubled haploid maize lines and their testcross performance under drought stress and non-stress conditions
In contrast to conventional inbreeding that takes up to seven generations to develop inbred lines, the doubled haploid (DH) technology allows production of inbred lines in two generations. The objectives of the present ...
