Relationship between lodging morphological characters and yield of varieties of maize zea mays






Journal of Agricultural Science 91(3): 633-638

Relationship between lodging morphological characters and yield of varieties of maize zea mays

Field experiments were carried out in the early and late growing seasons in the rain forest zone of Nigeria. Morphological characters associated with lodging were plant height, ear height and length of basal internode. There was a negative correlation between lodging and yield. Much of the lodging recorded, especially in the early growing season, was due to weak stems. Earliness, diameter of stem and leaf area had no relationship with lodging.
