In Europe a heterotic pattern commonly used in maize breeding is “American Dent × European Flint”. Maize breeding programs generally use only a small portion of the useful genetic variability present in the local open-pollinated varieties which, otherwise, have a poor performance that hampers their use. Two maize composites, EZS33 formed by open-pollinated(More)
In several reciprocal recurrent selection (RRS) programs heterosis and favorable characteristics are achieved by means of one adapted and one non adapted population. We evaluated with molecular markers, an intrapopulation selection followed by RRS of one Spanish population adapted to Mediterranean Spain and one US Corn Belt population non adapted to Spanish(More)
