The effects of inbreeding procedure on developing elite inbred lines of corn (Zea mays L.)

Journal of Sichuan Agricultural University 8(1): 61-70
The effects of inbreeding procedure on developing elite inbred lines of corn (Zea mays L.)
Four methods were used to produce 32 inbred lines from the local variety Qingshen White and the hybrid Qingshen X Mexican White Synthetic 94. Phenotypic value, general combining ability (GCA) and phenotypic and genetic variances were measured for 14 traits in the inbred lines and their test hybrids. Lines developed by mild inbreeding showed higher vigour, yields and GCA than lines developed by intensive selfing. Variances were not significantly affected.
