Traits & Protocols - Maize

The GCP publication Drought phenotyping in crops: from theory to practice contains a chapter specifically dedicated to the drought phenotyping of maize - Phenotyping maize for adaptation to drought by Jose Luis Araus, Ciro Sanchez and Gregory O Edmeades. This provides valuable guidance on principles, traits and processes for both practising breeders and students of the subject.

Both the trait dictionary for maize and information on SNPs markers and other markers are provided in the Crop Information pages of this portal. A link to the maize crop ontology, which is under development, is also provided.
