A multiplicative selection index applied to four cycles of full-sib recurrent selection in maize



A multiplicative selection index applied to four cycles of full-sib recurrent selection in maize



Crop Science 22(5): 981-983



A condensed form of full-sib family recurrent selection is described that requires two growing seasons per cycle. Results of four cycles of selection in the open-pollinated variety Krug are reported. A selection index composed of grain yield adjusted by proportion of dry matter X proportion of upright plants X proportion of plants without dropped ears, representing dry grain yield on standing plants, was used.
