    1. 1. Marker-assisted breeding for improving phosphorus-use efficiency and tolerance to aluminum toxicity in maize. Presentation by: Samuel Gudu Scientific Team: S. Gudu, E. Ouma, T. Matonyei, R. Okalebo, C.Othieno, P. Kisinyo, B. Were, A. Onkware, E. Too, J.Agalo, J. Ochuodho (Moi University) Dickson Ligeyo (KARI) Sidney Parentoni, Claudia Guimaraes, Leon Kochian, Jurandir Magalhaes, Vera Alves, Sylvia Sausa, Lauro Guimaraes (EMBRAPA) Mathias Wissuwa (JIRCAS), Abdel Ismail, Sigrid Heurer (IRRI) Leon Kochian, Lyza Maron, Miguel Pineros, Jiping Liu and Ed Buckler (USDA- ARS/CORNELL, USA).
    2. 2. Research Problem: Low maize yield • Small Scale farmers obtain very low maize yields (<1.0 t/ha) versus 5-8 ton/ha under research conditions and is declining; yet 90% of population depend it as a staple food. • Overall annual production of 2.8 million metric tons against a consumption of 3.2 million metric tons. • The 0.4million metric ton annual deficit met through importation and food relief
    3. 3. Constraints to Maize productivity in Kenya • Low soil fertility/acidity characterized by deficiency of major nutrients (eg P, Ca) and acidity (eg Al, Mn) • Biotic stresses namely foliar diseases (eg. maize lethal necrotic viris, MSV), Striga and insect pests(eg. Stem borer) • Frequent drought challenge • Limited use of recommended inputs (eg fertilizers, low potential cultivars) and husbandry practices.

    6. 6. Rationale for using breeding for tolerance to soil acidity • Liming option to minimize Al toxicity is not a sustainable owing to low access and adoption • P supplementation is not sustainable option owing to high P fixation in Kenyan acid soils and high cost of P which makes farmers not to use at all or use less than recommended rates. • Use of genotypes capable of utilizing fixed P and withstand high Al saturation • Conventional breeding for tolerance to Al & P deficiency is slow/less precise hence, MAS tools
    7. 7. Project objectives 1. Screening of Kenyan maize germplasm for Al tolerance in nutrient solution, for ZmMATE gene expression, and for P efficiency in the field 2. Development of maize topcrosses for assessing yield performance under acid soil conditions in Kenya 3. Evaluation of Kenyan maize topcrosses, synthetics and hybrids for Al tolerance and P efficiency in the field 4. Marker assisted selection for genes/QTLs to improve Al tolerance and P-use efficiency in locally adapted maize germplasm 5. Develop mapping populations using the highly aluminum tolerant Kenyan sources, 203B, K4 and/or CON 5 6. Training and capacity building
    8. 8. Objective 1 a): Aluminium tolerance of various genotypes Relative net root growth of selected 20 inbred lines after 3 days of growth in nutrient solution culture with Al
