 In most maize-growing areas yield reductions due to drought have been observed. Drought at flowering time is, in some cases, the most damaging. In the experiment reported here, trials with F3 families, derived from a segregating F2 population, were conducted in the field under well-watered conditions (WW) and two other water-stress regimes affecting flowering (intermediate stress, IS, and severe stress, SS). Several yield components were measured on equal numbers of plants per family: grain… CONTINUE READING
