Maize yield per unit area has dramatically increased over time as have plant population densities, but the genetic basis for plant response to density is unknown as is its stability over environments. To elucidate the genetic basis of plant response to density in maize, we mapped QTL for plant density-related traits in a population of 186 recombinant inbred(More)

RESEARCH T he three-way interaction of genotypes, environment, and management practices (genotype [G] × environment [E] × management practice [M]) (Messina et al., 2009) is highlighted in the diverse tolerances and yield responses of modern maize genotypes to specifi c abiotic and biotic stresses under varying management practices and environments. During(More)
We conducted a synthesis analysis on data from 86 published field experiments conducted from 1903 to 2014 to explore the specific consequences of post-silking N accumulation (PostN) in New Era vs. Old Era hybrids on grain yield (GY) and recovery from plant N stress at flowering (R1 stage). The Old Era encompassed studies using genotypes released before, and(More)
