The region located between 28°- 36° N latitude, 74°- 81° E longitude accounts for about 12.9% maize area of the country and 15.4% of the production. Maize is grown as a staple food crop, predominantly (>90% ) under rainfed conditions during kharif season (May/June -September/ October). Maize cultivation in this region, is largely dependent on rainfall which is sufficient for raising a successful crop. Besides rainfed situation, the region is characterized by relatively lower temperature and less sunshine hours than plain areas. Thus, the basic need of farmers in the region is short duration maize cultivars. Breeding work aimed at development of high yielding short duration maize hybrids and open pollinated varieties (composites) is underway at Vivekananda Parvatiya Krishi Anusandhan Shala (VPKAS), Almora, Ut tar Pradesh, The salient achievements have been dealt in the paper.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
