Combining ability and cultivar superiority of sorghum germplasm for grain yield across tropical low- and mid-altitude environments
Abstract Sorghum grain production in sub-Saharan Africa is constrained by the fact that farmers’ choice of improved varieties is limited. Hybrid cultivars have been shown to be more productive forExpand

Heritability and genetic gain for grain yield and path coefficient analysis of some agronomic traits in early-maturing maize hybrids
Abstract Breeders face serious challenges in breeding early-maturing maize hybrids which are required by farmers in marginal environments. The objectives of the study were to determine the geneticExpand

Role of genetic resources from different geographic and climatic regions in simultaneous breeding for high quality protein maize (HQPM) and stress tolerance
Due to the low biological value of proteins of common maize, it was reinitiated breeding for high protein quality maize (HQPM) using three genetic systems, namely: opaque-2 gene, endospermExpand
