Soil water capture trends over 50 years of single-cross maize (Zea mays L.) breeding in the US corn-belt.

Abstract

Breeders have successfully improved maize (Zea mays L.) grain yield for the conditions of the US corn-belt over the past 80 years, with the past 50 years utilizing single-cross hybrids. Long-term improvement for grain yield under water-limited conditions has also been reported. Grain yield under water-limited conditions depends on water use, water use… (More)
