Yield and its correlation with other characters in single and triple maize hybrids



Yield and its correlation with other characters in single and triple maize hybrids



Kukuruza (5): 26-27



During 1972-74, over 600 interline hybrids were studied. Under drought conditions, grain yield was negatively correlated with the length of the period emergence-flowering (r = -0.81) and with the extent of tillering (r = -0.56), but positively correlated with ear number (r = +0.95).
