Visual selection during successive generations of inbreeding in corn resulted in significant improvement in yield, ear appearance and plant appearance by 57%, 60% and 41%, respectively, of the 134 specific hybrid combinations.

For plant appaarance the visual selection was more eftective in local, well-adapted lines.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
