America
China,USA 507 Collection of more than 500 inbreds for association mapping panel (AMP) with different populations including non-stiff-stock (NSS); Stiff-stock (SS); Tropical and Semi-tropical (TST).
2 Sweet corn Sweet EastAsia China 295 Sweet corn is a cereal with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the ENO of the corn kernel.
3 Waxy corn Waxy EastAsia China 318 Waxy corn contains more amylopectin or waxy starch than regular dent corn, Waxy maize yield about 3.5% less than their normal dent counterparts and has to be isolated from any nearby normal maize fields by at least 200 meters.
4 Teosinte panel Teo America Mexico,USA 184 Teosintes are critical components of maize evolution. According to the most widely held evolutionary model,  the crop was derived directly from Z. m. parviglumis; but in some varieties up to 20% of its genetic material came from Z. m. mexicana through introgression
