Inheritance and chemical composition in inbred maize (Zea mays L.) X teosinte (Zea mays subsp. mexicana Schrader/ Iltis) hybrids. (Preliminary communication)

Inheritance and chemical composition in inbred maize (Zea mays L.) X teosinte (Zea mays subsp. mexicana Schrader/ Iltis) hybrids. (Preliminary communication)

Novenytermeles 39(3): 193-213

When 14 maize lines were crossed with a teosinte pollinator in work during 1984-88, the F1 and F2 hybrids exceeded their parents in height. About 40-50% of F1s were similar to teosinte in their profuse tillering, while some developed no tillers. Two main phenotypes were seen, one with many tillers and small ears and the other with no tillers and one large ear. There was also an intermediate type. The F2s were uniformly tillering and resembled teosinte.
