The efficiency of advanced generation of inbreeding for the final testing of inbred lines in maize (Zea mays L.)

, : The efficiency of advanced generation of inbreeding for the final testing of inbred lines in maize (Zea mays L.). Indonesian Journal of Crop Science 5(1): 13-23

A set of inbred lines developed from an early maturing source population were studied for their combining abilities at 3 stages of inbreeding (1) to find early maturing inbreds capable of producing superior top cross hybrids, and (2) to determine whether final testing for combining ability in inbreds can be advanced from the 6th to the 5th or 4th generation.

In a study of 6 inbreds using Method 2, Model, I of Griffing (1956) specific combining ability (SCA) effects (and hence non-additive gene action) predominated for grain yield/plant, grain weight, ear length and plant height.

The lowest heterosis was shown by 103B X 65B and the high...
