It was agreed that maize is often grown in regions or fields that are characterized by adverse soil and climatic (especially precipitation) conditions. thus one can expect that farmers in developing countries especially smallholders, need maize varieties that can tolerate limited water and nitrogen availability, the dominant growth limiting factors. Varieties intended for use by these farmers must therefore have a high degree of tolerance to drought and to low levels of soil nitrogen.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
