Effect of drought stress on leaf and whole canopy radiation use efficiency and yield of maize

Effect of drought stress on leaf and whole canopy radiation use efficiency and yield of maize

Agronomy Journal 95(3): 688-696

Drought stress reduces yield of maize (Zea mays L.) and other grain crops by (i) reducing canopy absorption of incident photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), (ii) reducing radiation use efficiency (RUE), and (iii) reducing harvest index (HI). The primary objective of this work was to quantify yield losses attributable to each of these components for maize exposed to drought stress in a 2-yr field study.
