Breeding to deduce a new maize (Zea mays L.) variety suitable for fall season of Iraq


, : Breeding to deduce a new maize (Zea mays L.) variety suitable for fall season of Iraq. Dirasat Agricultural Sciences 28(2/3): 261-271

Yield trials of a maize breeding programme were conducted from 1991 to 1999 to develop a new maize cultivar with high yield potential, desirable agronomic traits and a broad genetic base population that is suitable for the autumn season in Iraq. A simple recurrent selection for five breeding cycles with three seasons each breeding cycle was used.
