Maize accessions were planted in Kiboko and assessed for their morphological diversity. The results indicate that the maize accessions held at genebank are variable interms of kernel characteristics, plant height and days to maturity.
National accession number
A unique number representing each germplasm.
Mean height of 10 random plants, measured from the ground level to the tip of the head taken after flowering and before ripening.
Mean height of 10 random plant ears from the ground level to the node bearing the upper ear.
Days to 50% flowering
Number of days from planting to when 50% of the plants have extended silk.
