Development and characterization of recombinant chromosome substitution lines (RCSLs) using Hordeum vulgare subsp. spontaneum as a source of donor alleles in a Hordeum vulgare subsp. vulgare
A set of recombinant chromosome substitution lines (RCSLs) developed using an accession of H. spontaneum contributed some favorable alleles for agronomic and malting quality traits, and the introgression of the ancestral genome resulted in a loss of desirable phenotypes in the cultivated parent.
Population Structure and Linkage Disequilibrium in U.S. Barley Germplasm: Implications for Association Mapping
The results suggest that pooling divergent barley populations for purposes of association mapping may be inadvisable.
A Land Management Based Approach to Integrated Striga hermonthica Control in sub-Saharan Africa
An integrated programme that replaces traditional bush fallow rotation with non-host nitrogen-fixing legume rotations, using cultivars selected for efficacy in germinating S. hermonthica seeds, is outlined.
Genetic Variation in Total Carotene, Iron, and Zinc Contents of Maize and Cassava Genotypes
A strong and positive relationship was observed between iron and zinc concentrations for both mid-altitude and lowland maize inbred lines, but this relationship was weak for the cassava clones, and the potential exists for improving carotene, iron, and zinc contents in maize and cassava genotypes through plant-breeding.
CERES‐Maize Predictions of Maize Phenology under Nitrogen‐Stressed Conditions in Nigeria
Simulation models have the potential of greatly enhancing decision-making by farmers and researchers in Nigeria. These models however, need to be adapted before use. This study was conducted to test
Pyramiding and dissecting disease resistance QTL to barley stripe rust
Pyramiding multiple QTL alleles led to higher levels of resistance in terms of all components of QR except latent period, which led to longer latent periods than the susceptible parent (Baronesse).
Response to Recurrent Selection for Resistance to Striga hermonthica (Del.) Benth in a Tropical Maize Population
The observed progress in performance under S. hermonthica infestation demonstrates the effectiveness of recurrent selection for increasing polygenetic resistance against the parasite in tropical populations.
