Development of top cross varieties with downy mildew (DM) resistance is one approach to enhance maize productivity in tropical lowland environments. The objective of this study was to determine heterotic orientation of 18 advanced maize inbred lines towards popular open pollinated synthetic populations ZM523 and Suwan-1 under the prevalence of DM.

Breeders face serious challenges in breeding early-maturing maize hybrids which are required by farmers in marginal environments. The objectives of the study were to determine the genetic gain for breeding for high yield, and investigate levels of genetic variation, heritability and associations between grain yield and secondary traits in early-maturing(More)
