The effectiveness of half-sib selection with a double-cross tester and S1 selection per se was evaluated following four cycles of selection in BSK (a strain of Krug Yellow Dent). Five popula- tions of BSK were selfed, sibbed and crossed in a diallel series, and also test crossed to four single-cross testers.
