Genetic variation for frost tolerance of maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings

Genetic variation for frost tolerance of maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings

Maydica 35(3): 215-219

The frost susceptible and frost resistant Nebraska Stiff Stalk Synthetic populations (NS and NS(FS)FT-CT, respectively) and a highland tropical hybrid (NZ1A X 5-113) were compared for frost tolerance in controlled-environment rooms. Seedlings with either 2 or 4 mature leaves were subjected to high humidity (white) or low humidity (black) frosts between -1.5 and -5 degrees C. Leaf damage and chlorophyll concentrations were assessed immediately after treatment and after a further 7 and 28 days.
