Analyses of genetic diversity among maize inbred lines differing for resistance to pink borer and post-flowering stalk rot

Abstract

Identification of the diverse sources of resistance is an important issue among the breeders for developing pest and disease free hybrids, to reduce the inoculum load, to prolong the life of inbred lines/hybrids and to reduce the cost of cultivation. Molecular diversity analysis was carried out among 23 maize inbred lines with respect to post flowering… (More)
