    Corn was domesticated through hundreds of generations; wild maize cobs became larger over time, with more rows of kernels, eventually modified to the corn we farm today ().In fact, the degree of genetic alteration has converted corn from a wild plant—its progenitor commonly believed to be teocintle (Zea mexicana (Schrad.)Kuntze)—into a plant that is totally dependent upon humans for Author: José Luis Cabrera-Ponce, Eliana Valencia-Lozano, Diana Lilia Trejo-Saavedra. performance trials of commercial dent corn hybrids being sold in Indiana. The participating seed companies selected the hybrids for testing and mailed samples of seed taken from commercial seed lots to Purdue University for planting and evaluation.

LENG Location of test fields. Imagine a day when corn fields consistently average — or even — bushels per acre. Stine, the largest independent seed company in America and one of the industry’s largest corn-breeding companies, is developing the hybrids to turn that idea into a reality.

URBANA, Ill. – The agriculture industry is in a tough spot; it’s simultaneously tasked with feeding a growing population and minimizing its environmental footprint. For corn breeders, that means improving nitrogen-use efficiency and crowding tolerance, all while maximizing yield.

The first step, according to a new study from the University of Illinois, is understanding the genetic yield. Their comments, which appear only in the Conference on Heterosis Book of Abstracts (CIMMYT, ), were the incentive for this paper. Despite the use of potentially predictive databases and statistical procedures for estimating single cross performance, corn breeders must make thousands of crosses to find a few superior commercial hybrids.

Although U.S. commercial popcorn production has always been centered in the Corn Belt, the major growing areas within this region have shifted over the years. Up to the mid s, Iowa was the number one producer, with both production and processing plants concentrated in the western part of the state.

Corn hybrids with strong stalks and extensive root systems can resist these diseases if they are planted on time, at recommended populations, and in soil with optimum fertility, and if weeds and insects are controlled. Harvest lodging percentages of many commercial hybrids appear in the Wisconsin Hybrid Corn Performance publications.

Nitrogen supply before silking can affect the number of kernels set in the ear. Most corn hybrids take up less than 30% of their total N after silking. The use of this system of crossing male hybrid corn commercially feasible. The first commercial double-cross hybrid, Burr-Leaming, was released and recommended by the Connecticut station in Many of the State and Federal inbreeding and hybridization programs were started in the early twenties.Crop variety effects on herbicide performance is not well characterised, particularly for sweet corn, a crop that varies greatly among hybrids in competitive ability with weeds.
