Potential productivity of field crops under different environments. Los Banos, Laguna (Philippines). 1983. p. 155-180. Reeceived Feb 198485-109207Summary: Although the level of agronomic and economic inputs could explain much of the lower yield in the tropics, there appear to be regional differences in maximum grain yields for crops grown under nonlimiting conditions. These yield differences seem associated with partitioning of total dry matter to grain; efficiency of total biomass production appears similar for the regions. At higher latitudes, grain yield tends to be limited by processes that influence the supply of assimilates for grain filling; in the lower latitudes (tropical) yield tends to be limited by process that control grain sink development.
