Maize

 

ICAR-IARI, ICAR-IIMR, ICAR-VPKAS, CCS-HAU (Uchani), TNAU, and ICAR-DPR (6)

Objectives: 

  • Heterotic grouping and development of biofortified maize genotypes (Provitamin A, QPM, Fe, Zn and low phytate) with high grain potential
  • Mapping of QTLs for high -Fe, -Zn, and storability of provitamin A in maize kernels (IIMR: Fe and Zn and IARI: provitamin A).
  • Designing and validation of gene-based marker(s) for lpa1 and lpa2 in maize (TNAU: lpa1 and VPKAS: lpa2).
  • Studying the effects of QPM and/or provitamin A rich maize grains on nutritional status (lysine, tryptophan, provitamin-A) of eggs and meat (DPR). 

Target traits: Provitamin-A, Fe, Zn, low phytate and QPM
