Understanding the response of a crop to water deficiency is the first step towards breeding drought-tolerant varieties. In this study, inbred maize (Zea mays L.) line KS140 was subjected to drought stress by withholding water for 10 days at the V5 or V6 leaf stage. Water-deficient plants experienced a decrease in relative leaf water content, stomatal(More)
Under future climate conditions, the frequency and severity of drought are expected to increase. Maize (Zea mays L.) is susceptible to drought, especially at flowering. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of consecutive days of visible wilting (DAW) during tassel emergence using two types of Korean maize hybrids, Gwangpyeongok (Gwp;(More)
Maize (Zea mays L.) is a major crop with different uses but shows significant susceptibility to drought stress. Recent climate change has caused prolonged drought stress, but in most countries maize production relies on rain-fed cultivation. This study was to investigate the impact of the consecutive days of visible wilting (DAW) during tassel initiation(More)
Understanding the complex response mechanism of a crop to drought is the major step in the developing of tolerant genotypes. In our study, to investigate physiological traits and proteome dynamics, an inbred maize (Zea mays L.) line (KS141) was subjected to 10 days of water-withholding at the V5 or V6 leaf stage. The subsequent analysis of their(More)
Maize is highly susceptible to waterlogging, which is becoming one of worldwide abiotic threats in many agricultural areas. This study was evaluated to establish the screening method and to find tolerant maize genotypes. Six Korean maize inbred lines were subjected to waterlogging at V3 for 15 days using a big size pot with single maize plant (big pot(More)
Sweet corn has a short growing period of 80 to 90 days in Korea, which allows famers to grow this crop using various cropping systems. This objective of this study was to find the optimum plant density for Korean sweet corn (se) hybrids ‘Godangok’ and ‘Guseulok’ when they were grown as the second crop. Plant densities were 5,710, 6,670, and 8,000 plants(More)
