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 ...
Factors influencing the distribution of striga species in maize-based cropping systems in Kasaï oriental province of the Democratic Republic of Congo
(Makerere University, 2015)
In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), maize is the principle cereal and it is the second most important staple food after cassava. However, maize production has been reported to decrease over the years. For instance, ...
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 ...
Combining ability of maize inbred lines for performance under low nitrogen and drought stresses
(African Crop Science Society, 2011)
Drought and infertile soils are increasingly the most important stresses affecting maize (Zea mays L.) and causing substantial yield losses in Sub-Saharan Africa. Varieties with improved water use efficiency and/or N would ...
