RESEARCH REGARDING THE BEHAVIOUR OF A MAIZE HYBRID VARIETY UNDER PEDOCLIMATIC CONDITIONS IN THE MUREșULUI MEADOW PUBLISHEDAranka MATYUS, Florin CRISTA, Lucian BOTOS email@example.com
Abstract: Due to the very high productivity and multiple uses of its products in human food, in animal husbandry an industry, corn is one of the most important crops on our planet (Imbrea, et al., 2011). Due to the large surfaces it covers, and especially due to its high productions, mankind depends on corn for food (David, et al., 2003). In this context, even though it is one of the oldest plants cultivated, corn still remains one of the most studied plants. The large number of hybrids homologated for cultivation in Romania hinder farmers in selecting the right hybrid variety which should insure, in the current context of climatic changes, constancy in production and, implicitly, superior performance (Gros, et al., 2010). The current research answers this challenge in an area where maize, next to wheat, covers the largest cultivated surfaces. The bilogic matrial used in this research is represented by Dekalb maize hybrids, the research highlighting the special value of the biologic amterial and the favourable response to the applied technology.
