Differences among prolific maize hybrids in the effects of lower leaf removal



Differences among prolific maize hybrids in the effects of lower leaf removal



Maydica 36(1): 1-10



The effects of lower leaf removal in 7 field grown hybrids of varying N responsiveness were evaluated over a range of fertilizer N supplies. Lower leaf removal at anthesis and 17 days after anthesis reduced yields by 15 and 9%, respectively. Lower ears were affected more than apical ears. The remobilization of N from remaining upper leaves was not affected but stalks of plants whose lower leaves were removed had higher levels of N at harvest.
