      Maize is an important food and feed crop in many countries. It is also one of the most important target crops for the application of biotechnology. Currently, there are more biotech traits available on the market in maize than in any other crop. Generation of transgenic events is a crucial step in the development of biotech traits. For commercial applications, a high throughput .   Development Principles of Maize Industry Based on SWOT Analysis in Heilongjiang Province With the development of economic globalization and the progress of science and technology, the factors that affecting Chinese maize industry is changing con- tinuously, such as the severe inflation, the hot money speculation, the increasing cost of .

      The book focuses on several international assistance agencies and on two African countries, Kenya and Tanzania. The technologies considered are improved varieties of maize, the primary East African food crop, and small-and large-scale forms of agricultural mechanization. The book investigates how political and technical forces come together, and draws upon the debate on . COSTECH stands as the key implementer of Water Efficient for Maize (WEMA) Tanzania because of its mandate to coordinate, monitor and evaluate scientific research and technology development and.

        In all parts of Africa, green (fresh) maize is boiled or roasted on its cob and served as a snack. Popcorn is also a popular snack.

Scientists at the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) have developed powerful new tools to improve the effectiveness of their maize research, enabling the rapid development and successful transfer of maize technology in Kenya. The Kenya Maize Data Base Project (MDBP) was established in with the help of the Rockefeller Foundation, the International Maize.

This book describes the development and application of the Kenya Maize Data Base Project (MDBP), established inwhich uses spatial analysis to integrate data from geographical information systems (GIS) with the results of biological experiments, socioeconomic statistics and agroclimatic information.

The MDBP provides a powerful planning tool for targeting new technology. More than three decades of systematic research by the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI), have enabled the rapid development and successful transfer of maize technology in Kenya, which parallels the rapid spread of hybrid maize in the USA.

However, during this time, significant land reform and other socio-economic changes have occurred.

The Art & Science of Technology Transfer equips readers with a wealth of handy tools, including abundant tables and graphics; in-depth, real-life case studies that show how technology transfer works in a variety of settings; and appendices and checklists that address common problems ranging from how to search the Web to find market data and /5(5).

Thus, there are significant opportunities for agricultural research and technology transfer to improve Mexico's well‐being using integrated maize sector planning that includes targeted cultivar development and customized technology transfer for.

Agricultural extension programmes have been one of the main conduits of addressing rural poverty and food insecurity. This is because, it has the means to transfer technology, support rural adult learning, assist farmers in problem-solving and getting farmers actively involved in the agricultural knowledge and information system [].Extension is defined.

held at the WIPO Roundtable on Development of University-Industry Partnerships for the Promotion of Innovation and the Transfer of Technology that took place on 26 and 27 April,in Tokyo. At the Roundtable, it was found that in many countries, transfer of technology involves not only universities, but also government-funded laboratories.

In rice, sorghum, and maize, SnRK1b expression is associated with the development of sink tissue capacity and the transfer cell region (Kanegae et al., ; Jain et al., b) and may play an important role in linking ABA and Suc signaling with the transition into the storage phase (Sreenivasulu et al., ) and/or by inhibiting cell.Development (BMZ) takes up the existing education gap by implementing a development partnership exposure visit to transfer the technologies from lab to land.

Majority of these extension efforts mainly focus on location and crop specific technologies, and mostly on solution to problem basis. The book contains six chapters, each focusing.-Maize is thought to have originated at least years ago in the highlands of Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and/or Bolivia because of the great density of native forms found in the region.
