Release of the HQ-61 corn hybrid among farmers in El Salvador



Agronomia Mesoamericana 13(2): 153-157



During the crop cycle 2000-2002 in El Salvador, around 1430 hectares were planted with the new HQ-61 maize hybrid. This new material was planted considering its characteristics. The HQ-61 hybrid, with the traditional grower's management practices, yielded 2.38 t/ha; was similar to the commercial hybrids (2.23 t/ha). The yield varied in the range 0.9-3.4 t/ha for the HQ-61 hybrid and 0.6-3.18 t/ha for regular maize.
