Differences among commercial maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids in respiration rates of mature leaves



Differences among commercial maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids in respiration rates of mature leaves



Field Crops Research 59(1): 9-19



Total seasonal dry matter accumulation of recently released commercial maize (Zea mays) hybrids is greater than that of older hybrids. Part of this difference may be attributable to lower rates of respiration among newer hybrids. A study was conducted to determine if hybrids released between 1959 and 1995 differ in their rates of respiration of mature leaves.
