With consistent growth in the Corn acreage during last one decade, challenges faced by both farming as well as related industry have multiplied. Tierra has focused on creating diverse genetics with unique value proposition for growers, seed producers and the consumers. Major objectives of our corn research program are 1) Development of lodging tolerant hybrids with high yield heterosis combined with flint or semi flint orange-colored grain rich in vitamins. Tailoring hybrids for high density planting, machine harvest as well as responsive to low input management is underway, 2) tolerance to major biotic and abiotic stresses including Northern & Southern Corn Leaf Blight, Stalk Rot, drought, and terminal heat stress etc.
