Effect of seed morphological variability on field performance in maize

Effect of seed morphological variability on field performance in maize

Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Seeds: basic and applied aspects of seed biology, Angers, France, 20-24 July, 1992 Volume 3: 943-948

Seven classes of different sizes and shapes of maize seed (cv. DEA) were compared in field experiments at 2 locations. The initial effect of seed size on heterotrophic growth was maintained during the exponential growth period. It disappeared during stem elongation. Yield was not affected by seed size. Plant development varied slightly between classes.
