Seed protein content and its relationships with agronomic traits in pigeonpea is controlled by both main and epistatic efects QTLs
(Scientific Reports, 2020)
The genetic architecture of seed protein content (SPC) and its relationships to agronomic traits in pigeonpea is poorly understood. Accordingly, fve F2 populations segregating for SPC and four agronomic traits (seed ...
QTL-seq for the identification of candidate genes for days to flowering and leaf shape in pigeonpea
To identify genomic segments associated with days to flowering (DF) and leaf shape in pigeonpea, QTL-seq approach has been used in the present study. Genome-wide SNP profiling of extreme phenotypic bulks was conducted for ...
Effect of potato-bean intercrop arrangement, plant spacing and fertiliser usage on plant growth and tuber yield in different environments
(Makerere University Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, 2022)
In Uganda, potato (Solanum tuberosum. L) is an important cash and food crop but its productivity has stagnated at around 3.5 t ha-1, far below potential (20 t ha-1), mainly due to soil exhaustion resulting from land ...
Farmers’ Intention to Adopt Agronomic Biofortification: The Case of Iodine Biofortified Vegetables in Uganda
Agronomic biofortification, the application of fertilizer to increase micronutrient concentrations in staple food crops, has been increasingly promoted as a valuable approach to alleviate micronutrient deficiencies, but ...
Economic Feasibility of Iodine Agronomic Biofortification
Cost–benefit analysis of (iodine) biofortification at farm level is limited in the literature. This study aimed to analyze the economic feasibility of applying iodine-rich fertilizers (agronomic biofortification) to ...
