The results observed in this study provide valuable information for understanding the genetic variation of drought stress tolerance in maize, and show great potential to improve drought stress tolerance in maize via genomic selection.

Phenotypic evaluation of the drought-tolerant traits and identification of the genetic markers associated with these traits in diverse germplasms are essential for developing drought-tolerant germplasm through molecular breeding. A collection of 210 off-PVP (no longer subject to Plant Variety Protection) maize inbred lines introduced from the USA (ALs) were genotyped using a low-coverage sequencing method and phenotyped in eight environments (location × year × treatment) in China. The CV of phenotypic data for six target traits varied from 5.34 to 20.69% under well-watered (WW) conditions and from 5.46 to 35.98% under drought-stressed (WS) conditions.
