Abstract: According to the National Nutrition Survey-2011, 47.6% of pregnant women, 41.3% of nonpregnant women and 39.2% of children are Zinc deficient in Pakistan. Zinc fortified maize can be an alternative approach to enhance dietary quality of vulnerable communities. However, the agronomic performance of these varieties should be better or at par with widely cultivated varieties for rapid adoption by farmers. Therefore, current study is focused on evaluation of agronomic performance of Zn enriched maize genotypes.
