THE GENETIC CAPITALIZATION OF SOME MAIZE INBRED LINES EXTRACTED FROM DIFFERENT GERMPLASM SOURCES PUBLISHEDH. Badescu, C. Salceanu
The present paper proposes a comparison between the value of different sources of germplasm used to create inbred lines and parental forms of some maize hybrids. The studied material represents the result of the breeding process of creating inbred lines at ICDA Fundulea, as well as the testing process in the conditions of SCDA Simnic of inbred lines and maize hybrids of foreign firms that operates in Romania with their own genetic material. The results show the progress achieved worldwide and in our country concerning the breeding methods of the hybrid maize in comparison with the situation between 1960 and 1970.
