Event Description

Full Description:
Maize is the world’s largest crop but only a minor niche summer grain in Australia’s northern dryland growing regions. Maize production area is limited due to industry preferences for the more drought adapted sorghum. We explore interactions across the GxM domains for maize drought adaption across semi-arid sub-tropical environments in Queensland and New South Wales. Prolific maize hybrids grown at low population densities out yield non-prolific hybrids in all environments. However, canopy management of available hybrids at low population densities provides challenges and potential opportunities.
