Özet

We investigated the genetic potential of six maize families for simultaneous selection of oil content and grain yield. Six generations of six families were generated in 2011 and 2012. These genotypes were tested in a field experiment, conducted in Dardanos Research and Application Center, Canakkale, Turkey, in 2013. Data were collected on oil content and grain yield per plant and then analyzed by using Generation Mean Analysis method to determine the appropriate families for simultanous selection studies. We also calculated genetic effect estimations for these traits in the investigated genotypes.
