Registration of Nine Maize Populations Resistant to Tropical Diseases
- James L. Brewbaker *
Nine open-pollinated populations of maize (Zea mays L.), ‘HIC1’ (Reg. No. CV-2, PI 652866), ‘HIC2’ (Reg. No. CV-3, PI 652867), ‘HIC3’ (Reg. No. CV-4, PI 652868), ‘HIS1’ (Reg. No. CV-5, PI 652869), ‘HIS2’ (Reg. No. CV-6, PI 652870), ‘HIS3’ (Reg. No. CV-7, PI 652871), ‘HIS4’ (Reg. No. CV-8, PI 652872), ‘HIS5’ (Reg. No. CV-9, PI 652873), and ‘HIS6’ (Reg. No. CV-10, PI 652874), were released by Hawaii Foundation Seeds of the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources of the University of Hawaii. Six are inbred-based synthetic populations (HIS1–HIS6) selected for resistance to specific diseases, and three are composites (HIC1–HIC3) derived from open-pollinated predecessors. The populations are largely tropically adapted flints that involve from 10 to 25% temperate parentage. They represent a total of 92 cycles of recurrent selection, and all are resistant to Maize mosaic virusPlease view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
