  • Native Warm-Season Grasses: Research Trends and Issues

    Native Warm-Season Grasses: Research Trends and Issues

    Including native warm-season grasses in pasture systems makes good ecological sense, and this publication explores the benefits and challenges associated with their use. The uneven seasonal distribution of forage production from introduced cool-season species is a primary factor complicating pasture management, while native plant communities are more efficient at capturing solar radiation.

  • Physiology and Modeling Kernel Set in Maize

    Physiology and Modeling Kernel Set in Maize

    Kernel number per plant is the yield component primarily responsible for variation in maize grain yield across environments. The authors highlight recent discoveries regarding the roles of carbohydrate, nitrogen, and phyto-hormone metabolism in controlling kernel formation. It also establishes new and fundamental relationships between canopy development, light interception, ear development and kernel set, and the use of these relationships to ...
