Breeding investigations for resistance to Phaeosphaeria Leaf Spot (PLS) and other important foliar diseases and a study of yield stability in African maize germplasm.
Maize (Zea mays L.) yields in the smallholder (SH) farming sector in Southern Africa have remained low. despite the availability of many improved varieties. Among the major constraints contributing to tow yields and ...
Response to selection for downy mildew (Peronosclerospora sorghi) and maize streak virus resistance in three quality protein maize populations in Mozambique.
Quality protein maize (QPM) has high nutritional value, but production is threatened by downy mildew (DM) and maize streak virus disease (MSVD) among other constraints. There are few studies of DM and MSVD resistance in ...
Characterization and genetic analysis of maize germplasm for resistance to northern corn leaf blight disease in Tanzania.
The majority of farmers in Tanzania have not yet adopted modern maize varieties and still cultivate landraces and open pollinated varieties (OPVs) with low production potential and susceptible to diseases like maize ...
Genetic improvement of Zambian maize (Zea mays L.) populations for resistance to ear rots and a survey of associated mycotoxins.
Maize ear rots are among the most important impediments to increased maize production in Africa. Besides yield loss, they produce mycotoxins in their host whose contamination has been linked to several human and animal ...
Recurrent selection for gray leaf spot (GLS) and phaeosphaeria leaf spot (PLS) resistance in four maize populations and heterotic classification of maize germplasm from western Kenya.
Maize (Zea mays L.) production is constrained by a number of stresses, amongst the most important are gray leaf spot (GLS) caused by a fungus Cercospora zeaemaydis Tehon and E.Y. Daniels and Phaeosphaeria leaf spot (PLS) ...
