Hybrid maize sterility in Bara Nepal

This year the poor farmers of Bara district of Nepal when gambled with the hybrid maize as the magic bullet for the bumber yield had cheated. They were become more poorer and the food security of the whole nation is under a threat.
There are different analysis revealed by the agricultural scientists in nepal that it may due to
a. segregation of the hybrid ; meiotic irregularities (L.P. Subedi, Professor, IAAS, Nepal)
b. low temperature during silking as a result of climate change
c. and so on
I am here by only aim to give some ideas for those persons who would like to know about the tragic case in Nepal.
