Role of maize research in Martonvásár on trends in Hungarian maize yields from 1950 to 2000

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The development of the maize hybrid Martonvásári 5 gave an enormous boost to the research institute a few years after its establishment. For decades afterwards the Martonvásár maize breeding team played a successful and dominant role both in Hungarian scientific life and in the field of practical results. In addition to breeding, great emphasis was placed on agronomic research, aimed at improving the success of maize production. Martonvásár was the first to introduce hybrid maize in Hungary and to elaborate field technologies and processing techniques for hybrid maize seed production.These successes came at a time when the need was felt to modernise the whole of Hungarian agriculture, so within a few years, the whole of the maize-growing area of the country was sown to Martonvásár hybrids.Fifty years after the registration of the hybrid Martonvá sári 5, even though faced by strong international competition, Martonvásár still ranks first among Hungarian breeders, and occupies the 3 rd -4 th place compared with the multinational companies.
