To develop and release early maturing cold tolerant corn inbreds with emphasis on the 1800-2000 CHU market.
These data were generated for AAFC; however, due to intellectual property issues pertaining to Plant Breeders’ Rights, results for individual lines are not provided in this report.
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.
