The inability to accurately evaluate photoperiodically sensitive accessions under long-day conditions leads to an inability to choose the best available materials. The use of short-day seasons in Homestead, FL, and Weslaco, TX has been investigated for the screening of the available set of typical accessions of the Latin American maize (Zea mays L.) races.
