CGR AND NAR IN PRE-RELEASE MAIZE CULTIVARS
Citation :- CGR AND NAR IN PRE-RELEASE MAIZE CULTIVARS.Agricultural Science Digest.2000.(20):248-250
Crop growth rates and net assimilation rates of sixteen prerelease maize genotypes
were analyzed. MRC 5, 6 and 8 showed steady crop growth rate (CGR) values upto 60-75
DAS, while MRC 2, 3, 6 and 8 recorded steady and high net assimilation rates between 3090
DAS. The genotypes MRC 3 and 8 with steady net assimilation rates (NAR) and steady
CGR re'corded better HI and seed yields.
