We have tested to what extent the growth ability of several organs of maize share a common genetic control. Leaf elongation rate reaches every night a maximum value (LER(max) ) that has a high heritability, is repeatable between experiments and is correlated with final leaf length. We first summarised QTLs of LER(max) and of leaf length in three mapping populations. Among the 14 consensus QTLs (cQTLs) of leaf length, seven co-located with cQTLs of LER(max) with consistent allelic effects. Nine cQTLs of LER(max) (4% of the genome) were highly reliable and confirmed by introgression lines. We then compared these QTLs with those affecting the growths of leaves, shoots, roots or young reproductive organs, detected with the same mapping populations in three field experiments or in literature datasets. Five of the 9 most reliable cQTLs of LER(max) co-located with QTLs involved in the growth of other organs (but not in flowering time) with consistent allelic effects. Reciprocally, two third of the 20 QTLs of growth of different organs co-located with cQTLs of LER(max) . Hence, LER(max) , as determined in a phenotyping platform, is an indicator of the growth ability of other organs of the plant in controlled or in field conditions.
