The determination of the time between anthesis and harvest was performed throughout the year, with colored ribbons, 28 naturally pollinated flowers (open pollination) and 26 manually pollinated flowers and the number of days from anthesis to harvest was observed, which in this species occurs with the natural detachment of the fruit from the plant.
At pre-anthesis the flora buds were bagged and, at anthesis, the nectar secretion volume was measured with microcapillary graduated (precision [+ or -] 0.2 ul) and then discarded.
Grain yield was most highly correlated with shoot biomass at anthesis (r=0.83, P<0.001), P uptake at stem elongation (r=0.83, P< 0.001), shoot P concentration at stem elongation (r=0.79, P<.001), P uptake at anthesis (r-0.78, P<0.001) and shoot biomass at stem elongation (r=0.78, P<0.001).
Days to spike emergence and anthesis were observed when 50% of the plants within a pot had spike and protrusion of anthers respectively.
A.; Martre, P Simulation of environmental and genotypic variations of final leaf number and anthesis date for wheat.
Significant differences in the viability of maize pollen grains were detected among cultivars, days of anthesis, and times of day (Table 1).
The GLAI in both HPD and LPD rapidly decreased after peak anthesis, and this value was lower in HPD than in LPD after 14 DAPA.

The higher grain yield in kg/ha was produced by PBGST-03, PBGST-04, Bhittai and Sarsabz in water stress imposed at anthesis. Thus, these cultivars sustained the water stress by showing drought tolerance against other cultivars under evaluation.
Approximately ten flowers from five plants of each sex were observed daily for four days each year to determine the time and duration of anthesis.
