While expanding its acreage, its nutrition value was demonstration in raising swine, broilers as well as for human food. Many traits superior to the leading hybrid LVN10 such as medium maturity, good resistance to lodging, drought tolerance from vegetative to flowering stage, significantly higher yield than LVN10 were found. The total area for HQ2000 in 2001 was 1,000 hectares, increased to over 2,000 hectares in spring 2002, and can be 60,000 hectares in 2005. Feeding broilers with HQ2000 mixed with some methionine, each kg of gain in weight consumed less 0.3 kg of feed than those feed with ready mixed feed, reducing VND 1,356 per kg compared to normal feed. Keeping hens by ready mixed feed from CP 524 (Lot 1), normal maize mixed with methionin (0.15%) (Lot 2), and HQ2000 mixed with the same amount of methionin as lot 2 (Lot 3). Benefits analysis showed that using HQ2000 ten eggs could save VND 414 compared to lot 2 and VND 981 compared to lot 1. Feeding swine with HQ2000, the cost of feed was cheaper than the Cargill feed VND 667 per kg. Pig keepers could get a profit of VND 16,000 per head during 30 days. Kernels of HQ2000 was fully accepted as human food for minorities in mountainous provinces.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
