Breeding activities include the evaluation of resistance to F. moniliforme during the germplasm development process. At early stages of inbreeding, and during the characterization of derived lines, artificial inoculations are performed. Disease resistant sources are being used in the population improvement process, the formation of synthetics and line recycling. Quality protein maize (QPM) germplasm has also been evaluated, and possesses the same levels of resistance as normal endosperm germplasm.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
