Abstract

Before 1990, several breeding programs – in both private and public sectors in India – extensively used a single female parent (296B) in their hybrid development programs. The seed parent, 296A is highly sensitive to low temperature leading to difficulties in hybrid seed production. This led to increased hybrid seed costs. Since only one female parent was extensively used, it also led to reduced diversity of hybrids grown by farmers in India.
