Studies on tropical popcorn (Zea mays L. ssp. mays) gene pools are still scarce. The objective of this study was to infer tropical popcorn gene pools by employing molecular and phenotypic information. Forty-eight inbred lines and 140 individuals belonging to the Viçosa and Beija-Flor popcorn populations were genotyped using 90 simple sequence repeat (SSR)(More)
Popcorn inbred lines with more efficient nitrogen use are better able to uptake nitrogen from the soil and convert it into higher grain yield, resulting in lower environmental and economic impacts caused by nitrogen fertilization. The objectives of this study were to (i) identify inbred lines superior in nitrogen use (ii) assess the genetic diversity(More)
