In 1986 BAR! released 3 open-pollinated maize varieties. Two of them viz. Barnali and Shuvra are field corn and the other one is a pop corn. Barnali a yellow semi-flint, widely adaptable composite has become the most popular variety in the country till to-day. In 1991 another OPV viz. Mohar was released. Due to its late leaf senescence character farmers can use this variety as fodder after harvest of ears. Other two yellow grained OPVs namely BAR! Maize 5 and BAR! Maize 6 has been released in 1997 and in 1998, respectively. Their yield potentiality is a little higher than the popular variety Barnali. Hybrid maize development work was initiated only a few years ago. BAR! tested CIMMYT and TAMNET hybrids in different research stations for last four to five years. Some of the CIMMYT hybrids were selected, among them the inbred parents of three single crosses viz. CMS 933084, CMS 933072 and CMS 9510101 has been received. Some hybrids through TAMNET trials were also selected. The notable ones are Suwan 3701, Suwan 3702, and KTX 3503. Inbred parents of Suwan 3701 and Suwan 3702 were received earlier through FAO-KU agreement. Research on component technology development such as agronomic, disease and insect, post-harvest management are also being carried out by the scientists of concerned discipline. On-farm research for adoption study of the new variety and component technology in fanning system of the country are also carried out by On-farm research scientists of BARI.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
