NARC/CIMMYT Hill Maize Research Project

Progetto concluso

SDC has been supporting HMRP since 1999. HMRP had very encouraging achievements in the first three phases, such as: i) setting of the maize research priorities, establishing participatory variety selection, validation and certification methodologies, linking research with extension for wider dissemination, ii) certification of nine improved varieties and production of 4,416 MT of improved maize seeds, and iii) linking farmer’s feedback to policy decisions through farmer’s assessment tests over released varieties. HMRP has contributed to establishing a national research system, linking research with extension and strengthening farmers’ groups to produce maize seeds and deal with markets for better and assured prices. This fourth phase will focus on strengthening seeds dissemination channels, developing market links, ensuring the decentralized seed quality assurance system and developing more new maize varieties as the demand remains high.
