There are several important and quite diverse maize growing ecologies. These ecologies require different types of technologies ian many cases. The National Maize Research Program (NMRP) established a strategy for dealing with the diverse requirements for maize research in Nepal. This strategy includes placing greater research focus on the midhills where the majority of the maize is grown. NMRP will also establish links with other institutions and organizations to ensure that technologies that are developed are widely disseminated. The strategy also includes exploiting germplasm from CIMMYT's breeding program and an expansive on-farm testing program to ensure that farmers input into the varietal development process is maximized. Agronomic research will be more site-specific and will be built around priority problems in the current cropping systems. Community-based seed production will be a key component of the strategy for supplying seed of improved varieties in the more inaccessible areas of the country.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
