Estimation of the parental value of potential parental components in median complementary synthetics

Memorias de la III Reunion Latinoamericana y XVI Reunion de la Zona Andina de Investigadores en Maiz Cochabamba, Santa Cruz, Bolivia, 1995: Tomo II: 753-767

Estimation of the parental value of potential parental components in median complementary synthetics

A possible method for predicting the number and identity of maize parental components constituting a good synthetic variety is examined based on evaluation of progenies obtained by crossing each potential parent with the population formed by all potential parents. On the basis of this evaluation, the concept of median complementary synthetics is developed. It is based on the theory of gametic and genotypic arrays in diploid populations of randomly mating individuals.
