These are high (> 10 t/ha) yield potential environments for maize, making this maize a viable alternative either for intercropping with coffee ratoons or as a monocrop (Vanegas y Polania, 2002). But maize genotypes better adapted to this environment are required. One approach is to select and utilize the subtropica1 x tropical genotypes generated by CIMMYT.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
