Sumario: Economic indexes for the production and use ofimproved corn of quality protein (QPM) in Mexico. Topromote the extensive use of quality protein corns (QPM),schemes as kg/kg of corn could be an alternative to support itsspreading. The Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Forestales,Agrícolas y Pecuarias (INIFAP) in coordination with theCIMMYT, intensified research projects which allowed thereleasing of commercial hybrids and QPM corn varieties.However, joint to the characteristics of each one of the materials,it is convenient to analyze the economic implications of the useof these seeds, based on their conformation as simple hybrids, trilineal,varietals, open-pollinated varieties, because there is apotential problem of its productive capacity and quality ofprogeny lines; which makes it necessary to analyze the efficiencyof producing hybrid seeds. This work analyzes the impact of theproductivity of each progenitor on the cost of producing mexicanhybrids, based on the minimum productivity level. Also, anestimate is shown of the prices the farmers are willing to pay forthe improved seed of quality protein varieties.
