"The corn seed of Bisi holds 50 percent of the national need, the rest is shared by other producers such as Pioneer, Syngenta, and Asian Hibride," said West Indonesia´s Marketing Manager of Bisi, Hari Prabowo told reporters here on Thursday (May 3).

He added that Bisi´s production capacity is up to 80 thousand tons per year, mostly for the needs of maize self-sufficiency program from the Indonesian government through the ministry of agriculture, and the rest into the free market.

Currently, the average productivity of corn seeds of Bisi maximum 13 tons per hectare, for example Bisi-18 in tidal area of South Sumatera produces 8.3 tons per hectare when usually only 6.4 tons per hectare.
