During the season of 1936, the extreme drought and heat very noticeably interfered with the normal functioning of maize flowers, making it difficult in many cases to obtain satisfactory results in the breeding plots. Both staminate and pistillate flowers were affected, but this discussion is confined to observations of the effect on the functioning of the staminate flowers.
