    • 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 ...
    • Composition and thermal properties of starch in flint maize (Zea mays, L.) kernels: location and crop management effects 

      Actis, Marcos; Farroni, Abel Eduardo; Andrade, Fernando Hector; Valentinuz, Oscar Rodolfo; Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel (Gerencia de Comunicación e Imagen Institucional, DG-SICyP, INTA, 2020-04)
      Flint maize kernels are processed by the dry-milling industry to produce the flaking grits used thereafter in the corn flakes industry. Flaking-grit yield during milling depends on kernel hardness whereas corn flakes ...
    • Crop management affects dry-milling quality of flint maize kernels 

      Cirilo, Alfredo Gabriel; Actis, Marcos; Andrade, Fernando Hector; Valentinuz, Oscar Rodolfo (Elsevier, 2011-05)
      Dry-milling performance of maize (Zea mays, L.) kernels primarily depends on their hardness. The flint type is harder than the dent and semi-dent maize, yielding a higher proportion of big endosperm pieces in the mill. ...
    • 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 ...
