Information on the combining ability and heterotic patterns of CIMMYT's maize germplasm is of great value to maize breeders worldwide, for hybrid development. The objective of this study was to determine the heterosis and combining ability of CIMMYT's subtropical quality protein maize (QPM) germplasm, and to identify suitable germplasm for hybrid development. Six QPM gene pools and four QPM populations were used to make a 10-parent diallel.
