Abstract
The maj or obj ecti ves of this study were to c.etermihe genetic variability for parameters of resistance to Partellus and other desired agronomic traits, construct a~d test appropriate selection procedures, and estimate heritabilities, predict both direct and correlated responses to selection. The study involved a white grained parental population named ICZ3 from \Iv'I;ich 163 S~ lines and 150 ~ testcrosses were obtained and evaluated according to the study objectives so far stated.
