Selection at the haploid level allows increasing the efficiency of recurrent selection procedures. Af-ter four cycles of a recurrent selection approach involving haploid plants, grain yield of a synthetic population,SPC4, was at the same level as that of current commercial hybrids. The SPC4 population had a good performance incomparison with 27 synthetic populations obtained from Iowa State University. Transgressive segregation for plantheight and ear length was revealed at the haploid level in… CONTINUE READING
