Pakistan receives 20 hybrid maize seed kinds with exceptional yields.


ISLAMABAD: In Pakistan and four other South Asian nations, the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) developed and released twenty high-yielding, heat-tolerant maize hybrids.

CIMMYT has declared that these high-yielding maize seeds have been developed following ten years of intense work in collaboration with private seed producers in the area and public maize research organizations. Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, and Nepal were the other nations in the region to get maize hybrids.

Maize is mostly farmed as a rain-fed plant in South Asia, where it sustains the livelihoods of millions of small-scale farmers.
The initiative combined the scientific skills of its partners with the germplasm base and technical know-how of CIMMYT in crossing for abiotic stress resistance.
