  • Drought stress leaves deleterious effects on growth of maize plant while potassium plays an important role in reducing such deleterious effects. To study the role of potassium on maize plant grown under drought stress an experiment was conducted at Postgraduate Agricultural Research Station, Faisalabad, Pakistan. Maize hybrids 32-F-10 (drought tolerant) and YH-1898 (drought sensitive) were grown on February 25, 2010 and in next year on February 21, 2011. Drought treatments were imposed on… CONTINUE READING
