Screening of maize genotypes for low Striga Asiatica stimulant production using the Agar Gel Technique
(Bioline International, 1994)
One of the best characterized mechanisms of resistance to the parasitic weed ( Striga check for this species in other resources ) is low germination stimulant exudation by host plants. Using a simple and rapid agar gel ...
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 ...
Heterotic patterns of ninety-two white tropical CIMMYT maize lines
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Valorizzazione qualitativa dei cereali, 1992)
Development of inbread-based populations which are heterotic to each other was considered one of the primary goals when CIMMYT started of this study were to determine the combining ability and heterotica patters of tropical ...
Efficiency of high-nitrogen selection environments for improving maize for low-nitrogen target environments
Most maize (Zea mays L.) in the tropics is grown under low-nitrogen (N) conditions, raising the need to assess efficient breeding strategies for such conditions. This study assesses the value of low-N vs. high-N selection ...
A complete listing of improved maize germplasm from CIMMYT
Targeted to maize breeders and other research partners, this compilation features tabular listings of the genetic pools, populations, inbred lines, and special purpose germplasm developed by the CIMMYT Maize Program through ...

(FAO; CIMMYT, 1997)
Development of new stress-resistant maize genetic resources (UNDP Project GLO/90/003): final report 1990-1996
A synthesis of results of research under the UNDP-supported Project "Development of New Stress-Resistant Maize Genetic Resources" (UNDP Project GLO/90/003), executed by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center ...
