Maize hybrid with specific properties for industrial processing
Maize Research Institute 'Zemun Polje', Belgrade-Zemun
Keywords: popcorn; sweet corn; white-seeded maize
Abstract
Extremely high genetic variability of maize provides the possibility to develop new types for various purposes in the process of selection. By the method of selection, the grain composition can be significantly modified in respect to quantity and quality of certain components. It enables "designing" of new maize types with specific traits necessary for particular purposes. Maize is mainly grown as an energetic crop, but there is a broad use of types with specific traits such as: sweet corn, popcorn and white-seeded maize. Maize types with specific traits require remarkable attention not only in the process of breeding and seed production, but also in the commercial production and processing.
