Maize growth and temperature in the Kenya highlands
Hawkins, Richard (1979) Maize growth and temperature in the Kenya highlands. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Field experiments were conducted at Kitale, Kenya to investigate the effects of early soil warming on growth and yield of Zea mays. In the first of these experiments (1976) a polythene mulch was applied to warm the soil of late planted maize. In the second experiment (1971) maize with a mulch was planted at three intervals after the start of the rainy season.
