    • Changes of starch composition by postflowering environmental conditions in kernels of maize hybrids with different endosperm hardness 

      Martinez, Roberto Dionisio; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Cerrudo, Ani­bal Alejandro; Andrade, Fernando Héctor; Reinoso, Luis; Valentinuz, Oscar Rodolfo; Balbi, C.N.; Izquierdo, Natalia Gabriela (2017-05)
      Starch composition of maize grains is of great importance when used in animal feed and many processing industries. Maize production involves hybrids with different kernel composition and hardness, sown at areas that range ...
    • Discriminating post-silking environmental effects on starch composition in maize kernels 

      Martínez, Roberto D.; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro; Andrade, Fernando Hector; Izquierdo, Natalia Gabriela (Elsevier, 2019-05)
      Maize (Zea mays L.) endosperms with high amylose proportion are harder and denser than endosperms with low amylose. Environmental conditions could affect amylose/starch ratio. The purpose of this work was to prove the ...
    • Does the photo-thermal environment limit post-flowering maize growth? 

      Bonelli, Lucas Emmanuel; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro; Olmedo Pico, Belen; Di Matteo, Javier. A; Monzon, Juan Pablo; Rizzalli, Roberto Héctor; Andrade, Fernando Hector (Elsevier, 2020-07-01)
      After canopy closure and in the absence of limitations by water or nutrient availability, crop growth rate (CGR) of maize (Zea mays L.) is ultimately constrained by the daily incident radiation and temperature of the ...
    • Eco-physiological processes underlying maize water use efficiency response to plant density under contrasting water regimes 

      Hernandez, Mariano Daniel; Alfonso, Carla Susana; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro; Cambareri, Matias; Della Maggiora, Aida; Barbieri, Pablo; Echarte, María Mercedes; Echarte, Laura (Elsevier, 2020-09)
      This study quantified maize (Zea mays L.) water use efficiency for grain yield (WUEg) in response to plant density under contrasting water regimes; and focused on relevant eco-physiologial processes underlying the responses ...
    • Efecto de variaciones en la temperatura durante el llenado de granos sobre la relación amilosa/almidón y la dureza endospermática de granos de maíz 

      Martínez, Roberto Dionisio; Cerrudo, Aní­bal Alejandro; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Izquierdo, Natalia Gabriela; Andrade, Fernando Hector (2017-09)
      La dureza endospermática de granos de maíz depende de la concentración proteica, pero la composición del almidón podría afectarla también. Se ha reportado que endospermas con alta proporción de amilosa relativa al almidón ...
    • Environment, Management, and Genetic Contributions to Maize Kernel Hardness and Grain Yield 

      Cerrudo, Aní­bal Alejandro; Martinez, Dionisio Roberto; Izquierdo, Natalia Gabriela; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Laserna, Paula; Reinoso, Lucio; Valentinuz, Oscar Rodolfo; Balbi, Celsa; Andrade, Fernando Hector (2017-09)
      Dry milling performance of maize (Zea mays L.) is directly related to kernel hardness. This study assessed the contribution of maize hybrid and crop growing condition on kernel hardness and grain yield. Three hybrids that ...
    • Improving resource productivity at a crop sequence level 

      Caviglia, Octavio; Rizzalli, Roberto H.; Monzon, Juan Pablo; Garcia, Fernando; Melchiori, Ricardo Jose; Martinez, Juan José; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro; Irigoyen, Andrea Inés; Barbieri, Pablo; Van Opstal, Natalia Veronica; Andrade, Fernando Hector (Elsevier, 2019-04)
      The challenge to increase agricultural production with a minimum environmental impact requires to reach the maximum efficiency in the capture and use of resources such as photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), water, ...
    • Incidencia del ambiente y el tipo de híbrido en la composición y la dureza del grano de maíz. 

      Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro (Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata, Facultad de Ciencias Agrarias, 2018-06)
      En esta tesis se presenta y discute evidencia acerca de cómo el ambiente en que se desarrolla el cultivo y el tipo de híbrido empleado se relacionan con la dureza del grano de maíz (indicada por la relación de molienda) ...
    • Maize grain yield components and source-sink relationship as affected by the delay in sowing date 

      Bonelli, Lucas Emmanuel; Monzon, Juan Pablo; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro; Rizzalli, Roberto H.; Andrade, Fernando Hector (Elsevier, 2016-11)
      Delaying maize (Zea mays L.) sowing date can diminish grain yields through reductions in the number, size and activity of growing grains (sink strength) and/or reductions in the assimilate supply (source capacity) to grains ...
    • Maize prolificacy: a source of reproductive plasticity that contributes to yield stability when plant population varies in drought-prone environments 

      Ross, Fernando; Di Matteo, Javier; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro (Elsevier, 2020-02)
      Reproductive plasticity, the ability of the plant to maintain the ratio between available resources and grain yield should be a useful trait to maintain the coupling between yield and resource availability under low-density ...
    • Maize–soybean intensification alternatives for the Pampas 

      Monzón, Juan Pablo; Mercau, Jorge Luis; Andrade, José Francisco; Caviglia, Octavio; Cerrudo, Aníbal Alejandro; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Vega, Claudia Rosa Cecilia; Andrade, Fernando Hector; Calviño, P.A. (2014-06)
      Cultivating multiple crops as a land use alternative could increase system productivity and sustainability, providing options to soybean monoculture for the Argentinean Pampas. This study evaluates the performance of ...
