It was reported that 85.6% of the total maize area fell in the first crop season which planted during March to July and 14.4% of that fell in the second crop season which planted during August to February which covered small irrigated areas after the rice crop. Main maize growing areas are in the northern, northeast, central and southern regions of the country which cover 48.1%, 26.8%, 25.0% and 0.1% respectively. There are several constraints affecting maize production involving biotic and abiotic factors. Ekasingh et al (2002) reported that drought was a priority constraint in many agroecozones across maize growing area in the Thailand. Soil infertility was reported as a priority problem in marginal upland and highland environment. Rust was reported as priority problem in the north and northeast regions. Meanwhile BLSB was reported as priority problem in the north and central regions.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
