Water stress and potassium fertilization in field grown maize (Zea mays L.): effects on leaf water relations and leaf rolling



Water stress and potassium fertilization in field grown maize (Zea mays L.): effects on leaf water relations and leaf rolling



Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science 170(3): 195-201



Maize Kumiaidento 8388, Snowdent G 4578 and Ko 1 Go-CH 227 were grown at Hiroshima University, Japan under two levels of K fertilizer application (0 or 300 kg/ha) with a non-irrigated water stress treatment and an irrigated control during June to Aug. 1990. Leaf water potential, osmotic potential and stomatal conductance were measured 21 days after witholding water. Diurnal changes in degree of leaf rolling were measured on the 22nd day after witholding water.
