Abstract available in PDF file.
Genetic analysis of maize hybrids derived from temperate by tropical germplasm under low and high plant population density stress.
Maize is a major staple food crop in Sub-Saharan Africa and it plays a vital role in the livelihoods of small-scale and resource-limited farmers. The demand for maize is high and is also expected to increase due to the ...
A study of heterotic grouping, gene action and genotype x environment interactions of mid-altitude and highland maize inbred lines in Rwanda.
Maize (Zea mays L.), is one of the staple crops in Rwanda that contributes to national economic growth. Furthermore, the genetic plasticity of maize permits its adaptation to a wide spectrum of environments ranging from ...
Genetic and path coefficient analyses and heterotic orientation of maize germplasm under combined heat and drought stress in sub-tropical lowland environments.
Crop failures due to simultaneous occurrence of drought spells and heat waves have become a common phenomenon in tropical and subtropical environments as a consequence of climate change. This phenomenon has raised lots of ...
Determining heterotic orientation of South African maize inbred lines towards USA temperate and CIMMYT- tropical testers and genetic analyses under contrasting environments.
Drought and low soil fertility are major abiotic stresses limiting maize productivity in South Africa. Developing drought and low nitrogen-tolerant varieties is part of a long-term solution to improved maize productivity ...
Breeding maize for resistance to the fall armyworm (Spodoptera Frugiperda J.E. Smith), improved yield and yield-related traits.
Maize production and productivity in sub-Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), including Zambia, has been severely threatened by the recent arrival of the fall armyworm (FAW) (Spodoptera frugiperda J.E. Smith). Several strategies have ...
