Relationship between drought and excess moisture tolerance in maize (Zea mays L.)
(Southern Cross Publishing Group, 2008)
Maize crops grown during summer-rainy season in Asian tropics are prone to face both drought and excess moisture stress due uneven distribution patterns of monsoon rains in the region. We attempted to identify the relationship ...
Selection for drought tolerance in two tropical maize populations
(African Crop Science Society, 2003)
Drought is a major factor limiting maize ( Zea mays check for this species in other resources L.) yield in much of the world. The need to breed maize cultivars with improved drought tolerance is apparent. This study compared ...
Morpho-physiological traits associated with cold stress tolerance in tropical maize (Zea mays L.)
(Consiglio per la Ricerca e la sperimentazione in Agricoltura, Unità di Ricerca per la Maiscoltura, 2010)
Winter season maize (Zea mays L.) has emerged a new crop in many parts of South and Southeast Asia, where the crop has to face low temperature regimes (<5°C) for few weeks during vegetative growth stage. The objective of ...
