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 ...
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 ...
Pre-germination anaerobic stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
Pre-germination anaerobic stress caused by temporary soil water-logging at the planting and seedling establishment stage is an important constraint for maize (Zea mays L.) production in the tropics, especially in South and ...
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 ...
