Exports of canned baby corn from Thailand have steadily grown due to increase in world demand. The production is done in rainfed and irrigated areas which can be harvested within 45-60 days after planted. A number of hybrids have been released for commercial cultivation several years ago. The superiority of hybrid baby corn is presented in high yield potential with high quality ears harvested which generated more income to farmers. Pacific 421 was released by Pacific Seeds to serve the canning market. High yield potential and small ear size are the key traits which made Pacific 421 grown widely in Thailand. In 1998 Pacific Seeds releases 2 new hybrids, namely Pacific 129 to serve canning market with 7-10% higher yield than Pacific 421, and Pacific 116 to serve the fresh consumption market.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
