Resumo

CARENA, Marcelo J. Development of cold and drought tolerant short-season maize germplasm for fuel and feed utilization. Crop Breed. Appl. Biotechnol. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.1, pp.1-8. ISSN 1984-7033.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1984-70332013000100001.

Maize has become a profitable alternative for North Dakota (ND) farmers and ranchers. However, U.S. northern industry hybrids still lack cold and drought stress tolerance as well as adequate grain quality for ethanol and feedstock products. Moreover, there is a need to increase the value of feedstock operations before and after ethanol utilization. The ND maize breeding program initiated the development of hybrids with high quality protein content through the Early Quality Protein Maize for Feedstock (EarlyQPMF) project. The North Dakota State University (NDSU) maize breeding program acts as a genetic provider to foundation seed companies, retailer seed companies, processing industry, and breeders nationally and internationally. In the past 10 years, NDSU was awarded 9 PVP maize certificates and released 38 maize products. Within those, 13 inbred lines were exclusively released to a foundation seed company for commercial purposes. In addition, 2 hybrids were identified for commercial production in central and western ND.

Palavras-chave : North Dakota; ethanol; high quality protein content.
