Estimation of the combined fitness of endosperm lines and prediction of maize hybrids with high protein quality, Guatemala, 1988



Estimation of the combined fitness of endosperm lines and prediction of maize hybrids with high protein quality, Guatemala, 1988



Agronomia Mesoamericana 1: 31-34



Yellow grain hybrids of maize with high quality protein can provide a comparative advantage because carotenes found in these materials are more easily taken up compared to normal hybrids. This advantage could provide added benefits within the poultry industry. In this study, 91 possible crosses coming from 14 endogamic lines from the CIMMYT maize hybrid programme were evaluated.
