Hybrids with low grain moisture (GM) at harvest are specially required in mid- to short-season environments. One of the most important factors determining this trait is field grain drying rate (FDR). To produce hybrids with low GM at harvest, inbred lines can be obtained through selection for either GM or FDR. Thus, a single-cross population (181 F(More)
Associations between quantitative trait loci (QTL) and corn (Zea mays L.) percentage grain moisture at harvest (GM) have been reported in several studies; however, stability of QTL across breeding populations has depended upon the genetic backgrounds evaluated, the generation of progeny evaluated (inbred lines per se (LP) or test crosses (TC)), and/or the(More)
