AI = artificial infestation/inoculation
FAW = fall armyworm
GDD = growing degree-days (°C)
GLS = Grey Leaf Spot
Low N = managed low nitrogen
masl = meters above sea level
MLN = maize lethal necrosis
MSV = maize streak virus
nat. = natural infestation
NUE = Nitrogen-use efficient
RS = random stress
SC = single-cross
TLB = Turcicum Leaf Blight
Plant and ear aspects are scored on 1-5 scale, where 1 = desirable and 5 = undesirable characteristics
