Population diversity of rice bacterial leaf blight isolates in Uganda
(Pelagia Research Library, 2013)
The deployment of resistant cultivars is the best option to control bacterial leaf blight (BLB) and requires an understanding of the pathogen diversity. BLB caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv.oryzae is a destructive disease ...
Exploiting grain-filling rate and effective grain-filling duration to improve grain yield of early-maturing maize
(Crop Science Society of America, 2013)
Early-maturing maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes yield 15 to 30% less than late-maturing genotypes. One strategy for improving grain yield in the early-maturing group involves assessment of grain-filling traits as secondary ...
Morphological and genetic diversity analysis of rice accessions (Oryza sativa L.) differing in iron toxicity tolerance
(Korean Society of Crop Science and Springer, 2013)
A major emphasis in breeding for iron toxicity tolerance in rice is to identify differences that are associated with resistance and harness them for genetic improvement. In this study, thirty accessions, including IRRI ...
