Seven inbred lines were crossed in a diallel fashion and, together with the resulting 21 F1 hybrids, were evaluated for yield in 1983 and 1984. The highest average yields were obtained in crosses of lines derived from the synthetic BSSS with unrelated lines, most notably B84 (from the 7th cycle of recurrent selection), followed by B73 (5th cycle). GCA effects for these 2 lines were significant in both years.
