Genetic enhancement of maize for the development of high yielding and climate resilient hybrids

Title of project: Genetic enhancement of maize for the development of high yielding and climate resilient hybrids
Objective:

  • To Screen and identify existing maize inbreds for abiotic stress tolerance and development of new productive inbreds
  • To develop and identify high yielding and stress tolerant maize hybrids for different stresses.
  • To Understand the relationship between molecular diversity, combining ability and heterotic grouping
