Breeding investigations for resistance to Phaeosphaeria Leaf Spot (PLS) and other important foliar diseases and a study of yield stability in African maize germplasm. (2009)Maize (Zea mays L.) yields in the smallholder (SH) farming sector in Southern Africa have remained low. despite the availability of many improved varieties. Among the major constraints contributing to tow yields and ...
Genetic effects and associations between grain yield potential, stress tolerance and yield stability in southern African maize (Zea mays L.) base germplasm. (2005)Maize (Zea mays L.) is the principal crop of Southern Africa but production is threatened by gray leaf spot (Cercospora zea-maydis L.) and phaeosphaeria leaf spot (Phaeosphaeria maydis L.) diseases, drought and the use of ...
