Combining Ability and Heterosis of Selected Grain and Forage Dual Purpose Sorghum Genotypes
(Journal of Agricultural Science, 2017)
Sorghum is an important food and feed source in mixed crop-livestock production systems where its dual usage is a preferred option, especially among the resource poor small-scale farmers. Attempts to improve fodder quality ...
Estimates of combining ability and heritability in cowpea genotypes under drought stress and nonstress conditions in Uganda
(Journal of Plant Breeding and Crop Science, 2017)
Cowpea is an important source of food and income for small scale farmers in Uganda. Production is, however, affected by both biotic and abiotic stresses. Drought stress has recently emerged as a serious concern due to ...
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 ...
Response of Cowpea Genotypes to Drought Stress in Uganda
(American Journal of Plant Sciences, 2017)
Moisture stress is a challenge to cowpea production in the drought prone areas of eastern and north eastern Uganda, with yield losses of up to 50% reported. Genotypes grown by farmers are not drought tolerant. This study ...
