LQMH1 (IMHQPM1530)

Type of corn: Quality Protein Maize (QPM)
Parent: IML-343-1× HKI 163
Year of release: 2020
Gazette Notification: Gazette Notification Details : S.O. 3482 (E)S.N.38, Dated 7th October, 2020
Season: Kharif
Yield: 7.5-8.0 t/ha
Maturity: Early (100 days in NHZ; 80-85 Days in others)
Recommended for cultivation in: Northern Hill Zone (NHZ) comprising the states of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Meghalaya, Sikkim, Assam, Tripura, Nagaland, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh
Reaction to major diseases and insects: Tolerant to Chilo partellus insect, Turcicum leaf blight and Banded leaf and sheath blight diseases
Special features: Early maturity single cross hybrid shown significant yield superiority (22.4 %) over the relevant best check in Northern Hill Zone during three years of testing in AICRP trials of maize.
