Thus the utilization of quality protein maize is very important to develop livestock farming, particularly for the swine producers. The paper describes earlier efforts in breeding opaque-2 maize with the release of fIrst hybrid 'Zhong Dan 206' with soft opaque endosperm. QPM lines are being developed using different approaches including use of exotic QPM germplasm. A number of good hybrids developed in different institutions, such as Luyu 13, BAU 107, Xinsu 7, Chengdan 201 and Changdan 58, are available now. The paper also lists some of the new hybrids that have excellent yield potential. In the end, the paper discusses utilization aspects of QPM for food processing, as feeding stuff and its role in the national project of poverty elimination and sustainable agriculture system. The paper also discusses the need for biotechnological approaches to facilitate QPM breeding efforts.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
