This yield is due largely to the limited use of improved seed varieties. Since 1996, INIFAP and CIMMYT have been conducting research to produce high quality protein maize (QPM) hybrids and varieties which contain 100% more lysine and tryptophan than the normal genotypes and essential amino acids for human consumption.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
