Efficiency of high-nitrogen selection environments for improving maize for low-nitrogen target environments
Most maize (Zea mays L.) in the tropics is grown under low-nitrogen (N) conditions, raising the need to assess efficient breeding strategies for such conditions. This study assesses the value of low-N vs. high-N selection ...
