Behaviour of cultivars of green-ear maize (Zea mays L.) in Rio Cuarto, Cordoba, Argentina

Fifteen cultivars of maize grown for immature ear production, including amylose, dent and sweetcorn types, were evaluated, along with the predominant local cultivar Diente de Caballo, at Rio Cuarto for 5 consecutive seasons from 1986. Characters studied included resistance to maize rough dwarf fijivirus and earworm (Delphacodes kuscheli), earliness, ear characteristics, cooking and commercial quality, yield and uniformity.
