Maize - Choice of Variety and Seed

Good crop begins with selection of the right variety and its seed. Seed contains yield potential and other crop characteristics needed to perform well in a given environment. A variety that repeatedly performs best in an area must be chosen. Generally locally bred varieties adapt better to local climatic and soil conditions than those introduced from outside the country. Farmers must always plant fresh certified seed sourced from a reliable supplier of the variety recommended for their area.

Zamseed has a long list of old and new hybrids in the market.
