New CIMMYT maize hybrid available from Eastern Africa highland breeding program

The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) is announcing a new, improved highland maize hybrid that is now available for uptake by public- and private-sector partners interested in marketing or disseminating hybrid maize seed across upper altitudes of Eastern Africa and similar agro-ecological zones. National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) and seed companies are invited to apply for licenses to pursue national release of these hybrids for subsequent commercialization, in order to bring the benefits of the improved seed to farming communities.

To be considered during the first round of license allocations, the deadline to submit applications is 8th April 2022.
