  author={Junyi Chen and Li Xu and Yilin Cai and Jun Xu},
It is necessary to develop maize plants that are productive when grown in phosphorus (P) deficient soils because of the high cost of P supplementation in soils. The shoot phosphorus utilization efficiency, the whole phosphorus utilization efficiency of plant and root/shoot ratio as well as the quantitative trait loci associated with these traits were determined for a F2:3 population derived from the cross of two contrasting maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes, 082 and Ye107. A total of 241 F2:3… CONTINUE READING
