The inbred line EP1, from Spain, was used to pollinate the French inbred F7ms. Plants of the F1 hybrid population were earlier, and their leaf area index, crop growth rate and leaf area duration increased more rapidly, than in the parents. Assimilation area in mature plants was greater in the hybrids than in the parental lines.
