MLN-Infected Maize

A maize plant infected with the maize lethal necrosis (MLN) disease at the greenhouse in the CIMMYT-KARI MLN Screening Facility in Naivasha, Kenya. The lethal disease, which can result to high yield losses, has been identified in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. CIMMYT is leading research efforts to breed maize lines and hybrids that are tolerant to the disease.
