Improvement Method in Maize (Zea mays L) using Technology of Haploid Induction in vivo with Conventional Methods

Canteros Francisco H.

Abstract: The objective of any improvement program is the increase in yields, this leads the breeders to continually rethink the methods to increase their efficiency and thus obtain results in less time. This paper describes the possibility of combining, for the improvement of maize, a new breeding technology, such as induction of haploidy in vivo, with two traditional breeding methods such as: the cryptic hybrid method and the zigote selection method, for the fast and efficient provision of double haploid (DH) lines, with the advantage of knowing their specific combiniting ability, providing valuable information of the DH lines, before their final development.

Keywords: Maize, double haploids, cryptic hybrids, zigote selection
