Corn

Maize is one of the most versatile emerging crops having wider adaptability under varied agro-climatic conditions. Globally, maize is known as queen of cereals because it has the highest genetic yield potential among the others. In India, maize is the third most important food crops after rice and wheat. According to 3rd advance estimate its production is likely to be 24.2 M Tonnes (2013-14) mainly during Kharif season which covers 80% area. Maize in India, contributes nearly 9 % in the national food basket, cultivated under 9.3 M Hectres gross area.

Syngenta hybrids have made us market leaders in Karnataka, Andhra, Maharashtra, MP, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu. Our focus is mostly in central and south India. We have gained in the past few years due to our focused approach, ICS strategy and better portfolio.

Corn Project with PAU: Syngenta conducted joint projects with PAU for corn to support crop diversification in Punjab and promote corn cultivation. The fruitful outcome of the project has proved that with the right intervention of productivity enhancement approach the corn yield can be increased by more than 33% and provide a possible choice to growers to diversify and optimize demand for irrigation and other inputs.

We undertook a comprehensive economic benefit study to help guide growers to adopt corn as a superior alternative over rice as well as in Corn-Potato- Corn rotation. The project also included an evaluation of the economics of Kharif Corn through a Syngenta Crop program supported with suitable agronomy practices. A road map to introduce Kharif corn adoption program through incentives like subsidized inputs, Corn MSP, market linkages was also created.
