Epicuticular wax and drought resistance of several maize genotypes


, : Epicuticular wax and drought resistance of several maize genotypes. Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 47(12, I): 4707B

Several genotypes were grown under 6 different environments at 2 sites in Texas in 1983 and at one of the sites in 1984, under full and limited irrigation. Significant differences in epicuticular wax (EW) load were observed among parental genotypes in all environments and among hybrid genotypes in 5 of the environments. EW load increased in all genotypes when grown in the drier conditions. Broad sense heritability estimates suggested that selection for high or low EW loads was possible.
