Hybrids marketed are mostly of double and 3-way cross types. Germplasm sources used for hybrid development are mostly from CIMMYT, temperate germplasm, tropical and temperate hybrids and germplasm developed in MAHYCO seed company itself. Companies involved in hybrid seed production in India are listed. Some of the most prominent hybrids developed by the company have been listed along with their performance for yield and other traits. The hybrids belong to different maturity groups such as extra-early (MMH 133, EH 114, EH 115), Early (MMH 82, 478 and 1767), Medium (MMH 65, 69, 8825 and 3499) and full-season maturity (MMH 25). The company is also involved in research to produce specialty corn types (popcorn, sweet corn). Important diseases and pests of importance were highlighted. Future strategies were described to include initiatives emphasizing biotic and abiotic stress conditions, grain quality and increasing use of molecular tools in hybrid maize research.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
