Article
Full-text available
This study seeks to provide a critical overview of the existing evidence on extreme climate events and the adaptation options of the affected population in order to help scholars navigate the field. The study examined the recent extreme climate events that occurred in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), the climate change adaptation options mentioned in the...

Full-text available
Climate variability and change limit maize productivities in the tropical and subtropical environments with sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) being more susceptible due to multiple stresses and low adaptability including drought tolerance. There�fore, this chapter reported on the performance of maize parental lines for drought tolerance in relation to trend...

Aims: To evaluate newly improved maize varieties for fall armyworm and stem borer resistance and determine the relationship among traits for increased productivity in a rainforest location in Nigeria. Study Design: The experiments were laid out in a 10 x 10 triple lattice design with three replications and Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) in...

Quality Protein Maize (QPM) genotypes had been developed from the Maize Breeding Program of IITA for improved nutritional quality. Seed physiological quality determines the potential of seeds for rapid growth, uniform emergence and development under a wide range of field conditions. However, little information is available on how the agronomic perf...
Article
Full-text available
Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi (AMF) has been reported to help plant access nutrients from the soil. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the response of maize genotypes to micro and macro-nutrients as influenced by Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi (AMF) and identify the best maize genotype under the best fertilizer treatment. Ten maize genotypes...
Article
Full-text available
Maize genotypes of different maturity groups with good seed quality had been developed, but there is little or no information on how the seed quality of the maize genotypes are affected by their maturity groups. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to evaluate maize varieties of different maturity groups for seed quality and determine genot...
Article

Problem: Half-sib progenies were developed in a maize breeding program of the Department of Crop Production and Protection of Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, Nigeria but have not been evaluated for further improvements. Aims: Therefore, this study was undertaken to evaluate the performances of the half-sib progenies, as well as estimate and det...
Article
Full-text available
The identification of diseases in plants is usually achieved through the interpretations made of the visual symptoms by an agricultural expert. However, in situations where such experts are unavailable or the farmer's knowledge is insufficient, other methods for field-based assessments are a critical need. The need for a classification model to car...
Conference Paper
The rainy season of the rainforest agroclimatic zone of sw Nigeria used to be long enough to naturally cultivate maize (Zea mays L.) twice a year, but the prevailing climate change has now drastically reduced the rainy season duration. A study was conducted to determine the best planting environment for optimum maize production in the agroclimatic...
Article
Full-text available
Aims: The objectives of this study were to evaluate maize genotypes of different maturity groups for seedling and grain filling water use efficiency and determine relationship that exist between the water use efficiency traits and yield of different maize maturity groups. Study Design: Sixteen maize genotypes were planted in Randomized Complete Blo...
Article
Full-text available
Limited information is available on the comparative field performance of the conventional maize hybrid types as influenced by the seed qualities. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to evaluate the different types of conventional maize hybrids for seed quality and agronomic traits and determine the relationship between the seed quality and...
Article
Full-text available
Newly developed drought tolerant maize (Zea mays L.) varieties have been hypothesized to be of different genetic make-ups, hence this study was conducted to evaluate drought-tolerant maize varieties under drought and rain-fed conditions, identify the highest yielding varieties and determine the relationship between agronomic traits and varieties’ y...
Article
Full-text available
The number of days from planting to flowering in maize (Zea mays L.) is of interest to maize breeders because of its importance in the selection of appropriate hybrid parents. Highly significant interaction of planting dates with varieties for flowering traits have been observed during the early and late cropping seasons in the rainforest agro-ecol...

Genotype main effect plus genotype-by-environment interaction (GGE) biplot produces a graphical display of results that facilitates a better understanding of complex genotype-by-environment interaction in multi-environment trials of breeding and agronomic experiments. However, the full potential and weaknesses of this powerful tool are not fully un...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Maize (Zea mays L.) is adapted to all agro-ecologies in west Africa. Varieties of different maturity groups are needed to maximally exploit the agro-ecologies for maize production. Silking date is used to quantify maturity but this is affected by G x E interaction (GEI) and, therefore, unreliable. We hypothesized that, in response to climatic facto...

The objective of the study was to determine the interrelations among grain yield and agronomic traits of the maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm in the two contrasting seasons of southwestern Nigeria. One undred varieties of maize were evaluated at Ile-Ife (70 28’N, 40o 33’E, 244 m above sea level), a typical location in the rainforest agro-ecology of so...

Seed germination in Ludwigia was greatly influenced by seed age and soil type. In Ludwigia abyssinica germination was not influenced by seed age and soil texture. Freshly shed seeds and six month old seeds of Ludwigia decurrens variety B showed a very low percentage germination on all the germinationmedia, and six month old seeds germinated signifi...
Article
Full-text available
This study was conducted to evaluate the yield performance of different maturity groups of maize varieties at different planting dates under the marginal rainfall conditions of the rainforest ecology of Nigeria and identify the high yielding ones. The maize varieties were evaluated on five and three different planting dates in 2001 and 2005 late cr...

Information about the mode of inheritance of maize (Zea mays L.) seed quality traits is crucial in planning for improvement programmes for such traits. The objective study was to determine mode of inheritance and interrelationships between seed quality traits, and Fe and Zn contents in maize. Twenty-six maize genotypes were considered for evaluatio...
