The crop is grown on 140,000 hectares annually and the domestic demand for maize is rising due to rapid development of livestock and feed industries. Maize research activities are conducted by Central Agriculture Research Institute (CARl). The program over the years has released twelve open-pollinated maize varieties from various germplasm sources such as populations 28, 31, 22 and Suwan-l. A number of 3-way and single crosses have been released in recent years such as Yezin hybrid no.1, 2,3 and 4. The hybrids have a substantial yield advantage but cover only a limited area. The paper describes collaborative research activities with CIMMYT and the current seed production situation in the country .The paper also addresses several production and research constraints. Lack of trained researchers, diseases and lack of facilities for processing and storage were given as the major contraints.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
