Values correspond to cumulative monthly rainfalls (mm) and medium air temperatures (°C) registered at field during four consecutive maize growing seasons (2004-2005, 2005-2006, 2006-2007 and 2007-2008). Sowing was performed during mid November and harvest during late March. *Flowering date. +Monthly mean minimum and maximum temperatures.
