Abstract
Four years of reciprocal recurrent selection has produced rapid improvement in one of the parental varieties ('Ecuador 573'), in the variety cross, and in a commercial Top cross maize (Zea mays L.) hybrid. The improved strain of Ecuador 573 is now used as the male parent of the current commercial hybrids, 'H611C' and 'H613C,' And they yield approximately 25% more than the original versions.
