Genotypic variability among maize hybrids (Zea mays L.) for resistance to drought, salinity and high temperature at the seedling stage



Genotypic variability among maize hybrids (Zea mays L.) for resistance to drought, salinity and high temperature at the seedling stage



Research on Crops 1(1): 12-19



Some 23 maize hybrids showed genotypic variability in resistance to drought, salinity and high temperature at the seedling stage, thereby giving an opportunity for the selection for resistance to particular stress. Roots were highly sensitive to salinity. Some hybrids were tolerant to drought and salinity. The hybrids showed better growth under 38 degrees C and some also to drought.
