Genetic Architecture of Ear Fasciation in Maize (Zea mays) under QTL Scrutiny

Abstract

MAIZE EAR FASCIATION Knowledge of the genes affecting maize ear inflorescence may lead to better grain yield modeling. Maize ear fasciation, defined as abnormal flattened ears with high kernel row number, is a quantitative trait widely present in Portuguese maize landraces. MATERIAL AND METHODS Using a segregating population derived from an ear fasciation… (More)
