Variability of grain-filling traits in early maturing CIMMYT tropical maize inbred lines
(Crop Science Society of America, 2014)
Grain-filling rate (GFR), effective grain-filling duration (EGFD), and total grain-filling duration (TGFD) are important physiological traits of maize (Zea mays L.) grain yield (GY) formation. To devise effective breeding ...
Exploiting grain-filling rate and effective grain-filling duration to improve grain yield of early-maturing maize
(Crop Science Society of America, 2013)
Early-maturing maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes yield 15 to 30% less than late-maturing genotypes. One strategy for improving grain yield in the early-maturing group involves assessment of grain-filling traits as secondary ...
Reaction of waxy and opaque-2 inbreds and their derived progenies to multiple foliar diseases of maize in Uganda
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2012)
Specialty maize lines possessing important endosperm genes waxy and/or opaque-2 enhance processing and nutritional qualities of the grain. However, production and utilization of specialty maize varieties for food, feeds ...
Distribution and biocontrol potential of phlD+ pseudomonads in corn and soybean fields
(The American Phytopathological Society, 2005)
The abundance and diversity of phlD+ Pseudomonas spp. colonizing the rhizospheres of young, field-grown corn and soybean plants were assayed over a 3-year period. Populations of these bacteria were detected on the large ...
A comparative analysis of conventional and marker-assisted selection methods in breeding maize streak virus resistance in maize.
(Crop Science Society of America, 2009)
Reliable information regarding comparative advantage of marker-assisted selection (MAS) over conventional selection (CS) in breeding for maize streak virus (MSV) resistance in maize (Zea mays L.) is scarcely available. A ...
