Objective
In the next five years, we plan to continue our efforts to breed multiple-stress tolerant corn by conducting experiments in multiple locations in Texas. Specific objectives include:(1) Develop short- to full-season corn germplasm with multiple stress tolerance (primarily drought, heat, corn earworm, and aflatoxin) for feed, food, and/or silage; and(2) Identify traits and genes associated with adaptation, drought tolerance and heat tolerance.
