Replication Data for: Genetic Gains in the content of "Fe" and "Zn” diploid potato of three cycles recurrent selectionVilma Hualla, Elisa Salas, Walter Amoros & Meredith Bonierbale
The purpose of this study was to estimate the genetic gains of three cycles of recurrent selection for the Zn and Fe content in potato diploids, and to determine the heritability and relationships with variables of agronomical importance. The field evaluation was conducted in Acco, Paucartambo, Junin, Peru in a Randomized Complete Block Design, with four repetitions, evaluating 64 genotypes (17=cycle0, 4=cycle1, 21=cycle2, 22=cycle3).
Dataset for: Efficiency of the polycross and controlled hybridization methods in sweetpotato breeding in UgandaReuben Ssali, Robert Mwanga, Girisom Bwiire, James Kawuma, Rose Makumbi, Charles Wesonga, Godfrey Seruwu, Raul Eyzaguire & Wolfgang Gruneberg
Sweetpotato is an important crop in many parts of the world especially in developing countries. It is used for both human consumption as well as livestock feed. It is an important source of carbohydrates, vitamin C, fibre, iron, potassium, protein and β-carotene. Its production is, however, constrained by several biotic and abiotic factors, including pests and diseases, low soil fertility, drought, cold and salinity. Breeding is one of the ways to overcome some of these...
