In general, most activities have occurred over the past decade, although several germplasm collections originated from earlier breeding programs (for example, sorghum in eastern Africa and plantation crops in western and central Africa). 62 Emerging Technologies to Benefit Farmers based on statistical crop models and climate projections for indicates that wheat in SA and maize in southern Africa are the most likely to suffer adverse effects of climate change (Lobell et al., ).

V Five-hundred copies of "Characterization of maize germplasm grown in eastern and southern Africa: Results of the regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT" were distributed to colleagues, partners and interested stakeholders during This QPM in . The more densely populated and erosion prone countries in eastern and southern Africa (where maize is a major food crop), tend to be those with the greatest aggregate nutrient loss. Smaling () and Stoorvogel et al. () estimated annual net nutrient depletion exceeding 30 kg nitrogen (N) and 20 kg potassium (K) ha1 of in.

Maize (Zea mays L.) is the third major cereal crop in the world after wheat and rice and is used for both livestock feed and human consumption [].The crop also has other industrial and non-industrial uses. Maize contributes 15% of the world’s protein and 19% of the calories derived from food crops [].Millions of people in the world, and particularly in developing countries, derive a Cited by: 5.

Characterization of maize germplasm grown in eastern and southern Africa: Results of the regional trials coordinated by CIMMYT. CIMMYT, Harare, Zimbabwe. Abstract. Maize is the major staple food in southern Africa with human consumption averaging 91 kg capita −1 year −1, and normal maize is nutritionally deficient in two essential amino acids: tryptophan and e the development of quality protein maize (QPM) with high tryptophan and lysine, stunting and kwashiorkor remain high in sub-Saharan Cited by: 4.

We genotyped maize inbred lines developed and/or widely used by CIMMYT breeding programs in both Kenya and Zimbabwe using SNP markers to (i) investigate population structure and patterns of relationship of the germplasm for.

Maize is the major staple food in southern Africa with human consumption averaging 91 kg capita−1 year−1, and normal maize is nutritionally deficient in two essential amino acids: tryptophan and lysine.

Maize is the main staple in southern Africa where it is grown on over 12 million hectares (FAOSTAT, ).Information about maize growing environments and the relative importance of abiotic and biotic stress factors is sketchy (Bänziger and de Meyer, ).Setimela et al.

() analyzed trial data from well-adapted maize genotypes, over 3 years and 94 sites in Cited by: Many poor and marginalized farmers in eastern and southern Africa depend on maize for their livelihoods.

Isolated from main market centers, these smallholder farmers recycle their seed, growing the same low-yielding varieties they have grown for years–varieties that barely yield enough for the farming family to survive. The potential maize growing region of north-eastern Australia covers 6 million hectares of the broad acre cropping spread between 16 and 32°S and –°E of central and southern Queensland and NNSW (Dang et al., ).We selected 21 sites where maize is currently grown and where farmers have shown interest in growing this crop in northeastern Australia ().Cited by:   Introduction.

Maize (Zea mays L.) is a dominant food crop, occupying 40% of the total area planted with cereals in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).It is high yielding, easy to process, and readily digested, and it costs less than other cereals.
