    Abstract We determined the genetic components, and the correlation between the F1 and the F2 generations, for traits like seed and seedling vigor using a diallel crossing design. The study involved six tropical maize inbred lines from the CIMMYT. Crosses were formed in CIMMYT’s Maize Research Station in Tlaltizapan, Morelos during the summer of 2004. In order to produce F2 seeds, F1 crosses were grown at Tepalcingo, Mor. and Iguala, Guerrero. This was accomplished by controlling pollinations (half sibs). Seeds from the F1 and the F2 crosses were evaluated at the Colegio de Postgraduados, Montecillo, Mexico. F1 and F2 seeds… More >
