Abstract:Most of the tropical populations had favorable alleles for the diseases evaluated. When comparing populations crossed to elite inbreds for adaptation reasons, use of the same elite background is important. Four populations were found which were in the top ranked populations for relative number of favorable alleles for all five diseases. Breeding decisions about whether to self in the F1 or backcross to one of the elite inbreds before selfing were indicated.
