Grain maize at RAGT
RAGT has 6 grain maize breeding programmes at separate locations throughout Europe each having different soil and climatic conditions.

The main breeding objectives for grain maize are:
  • Improved yield with earliness
  • Control of the resistance criteria (VV – VR – Parasitic resistance)
  • Improved starch quality
  • Developments in herbicide resistance
  • Efficient utlilisation of inputs (Nitrogen, moisture etc)
 
RAGT's investment in grain maize breeding results in a number of grain maize registrations across Europe each year. The grain maize portfolio has varieties suitable for all maturity segments and all type of soil and climatic conditions.
