 en Increasing Maize Yields in Africa Through the Use of Maize Streak Virus Resist Hybrids
Barrow, M.R

Abstract

PAN 6099, a long season, white-grained, semi-flint maize streak virus (MSV)-resistant hybrid has been grown on a limited scale in South Africa and Swaziland, and has out-yielded other hybrids where MSV has been prevalent. Another hybrid, PAN 6195 (long season, white grained, semi-flint) has recently been tested extensively in several countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and has shown excellent resistance to MSV in these regions. The results from these yield trials are presented and discussed.
