A study on distant hybridization of Coix lacryma-jobi var. frumentacea x C. lacryma-jobi

Acta Agronomica Sinica 23(1): 119-122

A study on distant hybridization of Coix lacryma-jobi var. frumentacea x C. lacryma-jobi

The 2 stable hybrids 85-15 and 85-18 were obtained by 8 years of orthoselection.
