COMPARATIVE RESEARCHES ON THE BEHAVIOUR OF RECORDED AND RECOMMENDED HYBRIDS OVER THE A, B AND C HYBRIDS AS REGARD THE GRAIN YIELD IN SIMNIC – CRAIOVA ZONE PUBLISHEDC. Salceanu, N. Voica, L. Olaru, H. Badescu
The corn hybrids are grown for their heterosis potential, which enhances the plant yield as well as the physiological features as drought resistance, bending resistance and pest resistance and so on. Recently, our country has received several hybrids originated from abroad, especially from western countries as US and France. In order to have reliable data on the comparison between old local varieties and hybrids and these new hybrids we have researched them in several years at the Research Station of Simnic. The results have shown good characteristics of these hybrids in comparison with the local varieties.
