Paper Abstract

Using data from Zhengzhou the Excel-made time-dependent variations in the growth and development (G/D) stages of winter wheat in 1981-2002 are investigated, with analysis done of the curves. Also, the trends of G/D variations over the years are dealt with by use of the related tendency rates of the appearing dates of all the G/D stages of the crop. Results show that the dates of pre-winter G/D stages depend mainly on the seeding date and the overwhelming majority of the G/D stages shift to an earlier date in the vegetative growth period. A statistical expression is constructed by utilizing the 1981-2002 data of the number of days of the G/D stages and corresponding mean temperatures, with which to explain the variation of the G/D stages of winter wheat.
