(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 ...
