However, the amount of maize grain for export was rapidly decreased from 3.73 million tons in 1985 to 0.21 and 0.04 million tons in 1993 and 1996, respectively. However, Thailand had to import approximately 0.44, 0.45 and 0.40 million tons of maize grain in 1992, 1995 and 1996, respectively. This is because of the booming of the livestock and feed industry which started since the late of 1980s. Presently, this trend still remains, There are now at least 48 feed mills located in 18 provinces in the northern, central and southern regions of Thailand that manufacture both for domestic consumption and export. Therefore, in order to meet the domestic demand while maintaining a certain export earning, government policy should be geared towards the increase in maize production through the promotion of yield increasing technologies, expansion of agricultural credit programs and the support of post-harvest technologies for better quality products. This paper will discuss on the topics of Thailand maize including production and planting areas, some highlights of progress in maize research especially research on maize breeding and post-harvest, and the uses of hybrids and open pollinated varieties.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
