The present trends of maize breeding

The present trends of maize breeding

Annali della Facolta di Agraria Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore 13(1/3): 213-221

Aspects of maize breeding to which attention is particularly drawn include the question of whether to select single, three-way or double hybrids or to breed synthetic varieties, the problems associated with cytoplasmic male sterility (the susceptibility of cytoplasm T to race T of Cochliobolus heterostrophus and the high incidence of fertile plants with cytoplasm C), the use of the gene Ht for resistance to C. heterostrophus and the use of the genes ae (amylose extender), wx (waxy), o2 and fl2 (opaque-2 and floury-2) to improve the nutritional quality of the grain, especially the protein and lysine contents.
