System of evaluating breeding material of maize for resistance to the main diseases

, : System of evaluating breeding material of maize for resistance to the main diseases. Metody i rezul' taty selektsii i semenovodstva kukuruzy i zernovogo sorgo na yuge Ukrainy: 67-76

A 9-point scale for assessing resistance to the main diseases is outlined. It is recommended that traits correlated with resistance be identified to allow combined selection for them and for resistance. The importance of assessing combining ability for resistance is emphasized. Examples are given of the effect of lines differing in combining ability for resistance on the resistance of the hybrids produced.
