ZM 309 internationaly
SHESHA is a white semi-flint, early maturing OPV with high yield potential in drought prone areas. The OPV has good resistance to Maize steak virus, Grey leaf spot and Rust. It also has tolerance to drought and low-N stress. SHESHA is recommended for lowland, particularly where drought is a common occurrence. This variety matures earlier than ZM421 and is likely to replace it because of its yield and earliness, advantages to Leaf Blight (Ht), Rust and most common diseases.
Green Mealie or Grain Crop
ISILO is a quick maturing, highly resilient variety. It is popular for its consistent yields and highly recommended in the pollination of most other short and medium season cultivars.
MATUBA SELECT (PBR)
Bred for the lowlands of Mozambique and Swaziland
MATUBA SELECT is a quick flint variety that is suitable for coastal regions. It has good Downey mildew resistance and good storability. It is not as susceptible to weevil damage because it is a flint grain.
ZM 421 is a white semi-flint/semi-dent early maturing variety. It has a good grain yield and drought tolerance. It also has good tolerance to low soil fertility and acid soils.
ZM 523 has an average plant height of 180- 185cm with intermediate maturity. It has white semi-dent grain with 14-16 kernel rows per ear. It has a high yield potential and was selected due to tolerance for drought, N stress and low soil pH.
NELSON’S CHOICE is a synthetic open pollinated variety (SOPV) with excellent resistance to Grey Leaf Spot (GLS) and a medium maturity. Grain type is hard and pure white. It has good standability and well synchronized for silk emergence and pollen shedding. This results in a very stable and consistent yield performance.
