III. Plant Characters of Korean Indigenous Corn Lines
재래종 옥수수 수집종에 대한 특성조사 (III)
Korean local corn lines from various regions in the country were studied for the plant characters such as flowering days. plant height. growth rate. number of ears per plant. leaf size. brace roots and tillers. All the lines without exception were different in plant characters studied and the difference were also apparent among regions from where the original lines were obtained. The variation among lines and original regions indicated that the plant characters were quite dependent upon the magnitude of traditional cultural practices and other environmental factors such as precipitation or cropping systems in regions concerned.
