To develop and release early maturing cold tolerant corn inbreds with emphasis on the 1800-2000 CHU market.
This project is part of a long-term, multi-site study led by Lana Reid. Research findings will be made available by Lana Reid and team.
The objective will be achieved using conventional corn breeding methodology enhanced by double haploid inbred production and specialized screening techniques for cold tolerance and disease resistance. The trial is being conducted at sites across five Canadian provinces. The anticipated impact of developing earlier maturing, cold tolerant corn will expand the acreage of corn production in Canada.
