Abstract

Strains of corn differ in their ability to germinate at low temperatures. This is of critical importance in the northern areas of the Corn Belt. Frequently, the early part of the growing season is accompanied by cool temperatures and corn is planted while the soil is still cold. These conditions reduce the stands of corn by slowing up the physiological activity to kernel and making it more vulnerable to attack by soil pathogens.
