In the Central Highlands of Mexico, above 2 200 m in altitude, corn is an important crop sown in 1.5 million ha. H-52 is a new corn hybrid released by the National Research Institute for Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock (INIFAP) for rainfall and rainfall plus supplemental irrigation in the State of Mexico. H-52 is a three-way hybrid that includes germplasm from landraces collected at several states in Central Mexico. Experimental yield obtained in the region with H-52 varied from 9.0 to 12.0 t ha-1 when planted in april. In addition H 52 is resistant to ear-rot elicited by Fusarium.
