Abstract

The major portion of California's field corn acreage is planted to hybrid varieties developed in the Midwest. These varieties have produced relatively high yields under ample water and essential plant nutrients. However, it seems unlikely that such varieties would represent the ultimate in adaptation to conditions in this state.
