It also is a major grain consumer because of its large poultry program. BRAC initiated a maize research program in 1996 with the basic research activities like variety screening, synchronization, and performance trial of different exotic hybrids. However, the major research and breeding activities started in 2000 mainly with CIMMYT inbred lines and some other international trials. In 2000 BRAC received CIMMYT tropical yellow maize lines and some other S5/ S6 lines for development and implementation of an international trial like the TAMNET- 2000 hybrid trial (early and late). From the CIMMYT tropical yellow hybrid trial (early and late) were selected some better yielding hybrids for further promotion, and in winter 2001/2002 BRAC also implemented a demonstration trial of CIMMYT tropical early and late hybrids in two locations. The inbred lines earlier received from CIMMYT are now ready to use as parent material and some are underway in their development. At this time some single cross hybrid combinations have been performed with the promising inbred lines and are in the process of evaluation in 2002.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
