About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we aim to provide new insights related to the response of maize to environmental and management factors (solar radiation, temperature, water, fertilizer, etc.) and related sustainable production managements to further explore new paths that can achieve higher resources use efficiency and environmentally friendly production.
This Research Topic welcomes original research and review articles, but is not limited to, the following themes:
• Selectivity and adaptability of maize organ morphology to the changes in environmental factors
• Optimisation of the cultivation measures (sowing date, planting density, fertilizer and irrigation management, etc.) to cope with the influence of climatic change on maize production.
• The negative effects of abiotic stresses on the resource use efficiency of maize.
• The differences in genotypic responses to environmental changes and their internal mechanisms.
Keywords: Maize, Ecological adaptability, Solar radiation, Temperature, Sustainable production, Fertilization, Irrigation
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
