Abstract

The major aim of this study was to evaluate new methods to select haploids for maize breeding. The first method was to evaluate different inbreds for sensitivity to herbicides that could be developed as a tool for haploid selection, and the second was to evaluate automated sorting based on near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) and SIMCA analysis.
