Thanks to the single cross breeding method, scientists at the Maize Research Institute (Vietnam Academy of Agricultural Sciences) have succeeded in creating the maize hybrid VN5885.

The maize variety VN5885 has the following characteristics: Medium height, tolerance with drought and intensive farming, good insect resistance. The maize ears are big and long with orange seeds. The trial production results have shown that the maize hybrid VN5885 has the yield of 8-12 tonnes/ha and can be cultivated in all the crops of a year in the Red River Delta, the Northern Midlands, the North Central, and the Central Highlands. The maize hybrid VN5885 was recognized as a technical progress by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in March 2017.
