Development of sweet corn and popcorn hybrids in maize

Title of the Project : Development of sweet corn and popcorn hybrids in maize
Project Duration : 01.01.2007 to 31.12.2012
Project funding : Institute funded Directorate of Maize Research (Indian Council of Agricultural Research), New Delhi.
Total approved cost of the project : 57,48,575=00
Objective : Development of productive single cross sweet corn hybrids
Development of productive single cross popcorn hybridsDNA fingerprinting and characterization of promising linesDevelopment of synthetics based on combining ability and per se performance for derivation of new lines/improved lines for future use
Project team : Principal Investigator: Dr. Chikkappa G. Karjagi (w.e.f. 20.09.2010)Dr. Sujay Rakshit (till 19.09.2010) Co-Principal Investigators: Dr. Vinay MahajanMr. Bhupender KumarDr. Ganapati MukriDr. J. C. ShekharDr. Meena ShekharDr. Dharam PaulDr. S.B. SinghMr. N.P. GuptaDr. Rajpal Singh
Majorachievements : Eight promising sweet corn inbred lines viz., WSC1 (10085), DMSC-1 (10086), DMSC-6 (10087), DMS-201 (10088), DMS-203 (10089), DMS-206 (10090), DMS-207 (10091), DMS-208 (10092) were registered at National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (NBPGR), New Delhi.Two popcorn inbred lines viz., HKI PC-4B (10093), HKI PCBT-3 (10094), inbred lines with economically important traits were registered at National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (NBPGR), New Delhi.Promising sweet corn inbred lines viz., HKI SCST, Win Orange sweet corn 1, Dulcino Amino, Insec2, Cuba 379, Cuba 380, DMSC16, etc. with >20 per cent sugar content were identified.
