A nested Design I consisting of full-sib and half-sib families was used to study changes in genetic variances resulting from two selection systems in the 'Krug' yellow dent variety of maize (Zea mays L.). Two populations derived from Krug on the basis of earlier Design I experiments were used. K (S1) syn-2 was developed by intercrossing S1 progenies of the male parent of selected half-sib families.
