The Effects of Transplant in Sweet Maize (Zea mays L.). I. Growth and Yield
Jorge Rattin, Adalberto Di Benedetto and Tomas Gornatti

Abstract:
The aim of this study was to determine the suitability of the transplant routine using plastic plug trays as an alternative of direct seeded and the effect of sowing date for different sweet maize mutants. Sweet maize mutants hybrids Canner (su1), Butter Sweet (sh2) and Cheyenne (se1) were sown in spring and summer by direct seeded or in plastic plug trays (128 cells tray-1) for transplant. Present results suggest that it was possible to obtain similar or highest yield from sweet maize mutant plants using a transplant method than direct-seeded under optimal environments. The disagreement with previous reports on the effects of the transplant routine would be associated with the use of plug plastic tray instead of the commonly polystyrene trays which would let avoid the damage to root system when seedlings were transplanted.
