Characterization and Diversification of Maize Germplasm

of the Project
: Characterization and Diversification of Maize Germplasm
Project Duration : 01.06.2014 to 31.05.2019
Project funding : Institute funded ICAR-Indian Institute of Maize Research (formerly ICAR-Directorate of Maize Research, New Delhi.
Total approved cost of the project : ` 4,75,00,000=00
Objective : Assessment of genetic diversity in maize germplasmDevelopment of different heterotic groupsBroadening the genetic base through introgression and/or incorporation

Major achievements : Three inbred lines namely NN42050-1, CM117-341 and PLP-99-DM16 (EC440638) found resistant to TLB with disease scoring <3.0 at hot-spot locations.Three inbred lines namely CIMs-G18-74 (G18seqcef74-2-1), PML 41, TAI-99-PTS31 (EC440609) were found resistant to Charcoal Rot.Two inbred lines namely JCY 6, BGS 337, UMI 1220 were found resistant to MLB based on multi-year and multi-location evaluation under artificial inoculated conditions.
