Additive Main Effects and Multiplicative Interactions Analysis of Yield Performances in Cowpea Genotypes under Ugandan Environments
(International Journal of Advanced Research (IJAR), 2017)
Yield in legumes is the result of many plant processes, which are usually expressed in yield and have been shown to be affected by management, genotype and environment. The objectives of this study were to assess the extent ...
Factors Influencing Genomic Prediction Accuracies of Tropical Maize Resistance to Fall Armyworm and Weevils
Genomic selection (GS) can accelerate variety improvement when training set (TS) size and its relationship with the breeding set (BS) are optimized for prediction accuracies (PAs) of genomic prediction (GP) models. Sixteen ...
Maize Combined Insect Resistance Genomic Regions and Their Co-localization With Cell Wall Constituents Revealed by Tissue-Specific QTL Meta-Analyses
(Plant Science, 2018)
Combinatorial insect attacks on maize leaves, stems, and kernels cause significant yield losses and mycotoxin contaminations. Several small effect quantitative trait loci (QTL) control maize resistance to stem borers and ...
Genetic diversity and population structure of Peronosclerospora sorghi isolates of Sorghum in Uganda
(International Journal of Environment, Agriculture and Biotechnology (IJEAB), 2018)
Sorghum is the third most important staple cereal crop in Uganda after maize and millet. Downy mildew disease is one of the most devastating fungal diseases which limits the production and productivity of the crop. The ...
