Experts stressed that our school should carry out research on the breeding of new varieties and the research and development of green, light and simplified cultivation standards, actively serve the production of urgently needed high-quality nutritious fresh edible maize varieties and support green prevention and control technologies for pests and diseases, strengthen the experiment and demonstration of new varieties and technologies, and serve the supply-side structural reform in the agriculture sector, rural revitalization and increase farmers' income.

It is well received by the market for its rich nutrition, unique flavor and good palatability. The development of the fresh edible maize industry is a change from "eating full" to "eating well", and from a single variety to wide varieties.
