Morphological distinctiveness between Solanum aethiopicum Shum group and its progenitor
(Academic Journals, 2017-08)
Use of morphological markers offers an alternative in germplasm discrimination of research-neglected crop species. A collection of 25 accessions including five wild progenitors was evaluated in screen house to identify the ...
Diversity and distribution of African indigenous vegetable species in Uganda
(Academic Journals, 2017-11)
African indigenous vegetable species (AIVS) provide a means of livelihood to many urban and peri-urban dwellers in Uganda. It was thus deemed necessary to understand the existing diversity and distribution of the traditional ...
Performance of Solanum aethiopicum Shum group accessions under repetitive drought stress.
Drought is a serious climatic hazard to crop production, more especially when it occurs repeatedly. This created a need to identify repetitive drought tolerant varieties that recover following exposure to drought. Twenty ...
Heritability of drought resistance in Solanum aethiopicum Shum group and combining ability of genotypes for drought tolerance and recovery
(Elsevier publications, 2018-06)
Drought tolerance is a complex trait whose inheritance had not been investigated in Solanum aethiopicum L. Shum group. This is partly because of perceived cross incompatibilities in the crop. This study relied on 24 ...
Stability for descriptors of Solanum aethiopicum Shum group (family Solanaceae)
(Journal of Plant Breeding and Crop Science, 2018-09-30)
Solanum aethiopicum Shum group is a nutrient-rich and income-generating crop enterprise in various sub-Saharan Africa countries. Despite its importance, the development of its improved varieties has not been prioritized. ...
Identification of growth stage specific watering thresholds for drought screening in Solanum aethiopicum Shum
(Nature Research, 2020-01-21)
Effective phenotyping for drought resistance is a pre-requisite for identification of modest crop varieties for farmers. For neglected and underutilized crops such as Solanum aethiopicum Shum group, no drought screening ...
