Yield Stability and Adaptability of 25 Grain Sorghum B-Lines across Six Environments in Egypt Using AMMI and GGE-Biplot Models | Chapter 05 | Advances in Agriculture and Fisheries Research Vol. 1

Presence of G×E interaction reduces the correlation between genotypic and phenotypic parameters and complicates progress of selection. Among several methods proposed for evaluation of the GE interaction, the AMMI and GGE-biplot are the most informative models. The objective of this study was to estimate the G×E interaction in sorghum...

Importance of Foliar Nutrition for Pigeon Pea (Cajanus cajan L.)

Generally, the nutrition for the crops may be given as basal, foliar and fertigation methods. But, most of the pulse crop is sensitive to flower dropping, which requires foliar application for flower setting and pod formation. To know the facts the field experiments were conducted to study the influence...
