Exploiting grain-filling rate and effective grain-filling duration to improve grain yield of early-maturing maize
(Crop Science Society of America, 2013)
Early-maturing maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes yield 15 to 30% less than late-maturing genotypes. One strategy for improving grain yield in the early-maturing group involves assessment of grain-filling traits as secondary ...
