Comparison of two methods of reciprocal recurrent selection in maize (Zea mays L.)

Abstract

Reciprocal recurrent selection (RRS) was proposed for simultaneously improving two populations and their cross. A modification of the classical full-sib RRS (FS-RRS) was proposed in which the performance of full-sibs and S2 families is combined in a selection index (FS-S2-RRS).
