Their hybrid vigor
was 20% to 50% higher than their parents', yield was up, and some varieties were disease-tolerant.
The predicted gains were interpreted to identify the matrices with the highest potential for hybridization that meet the best characteristics of the botanical varieties Conilon and Robusta associated with the expression of the hybrid vigor
for the invasive exotic Brazilian peppertree (Schinus terebinthifolius Raddi, Anacardiaceae) in Florida.
This program will use the diversity of both the SG1 and SG2 groups, as hybrids between these groups display hybrid vigor
and good drought tolerance, as already observed in Ivory Coast.
In this study, the vegetative and reproductive development of the F2 generation plants of hybrid papaya plants, as well as the fruit quality, do not suggest the reduction of hybrid vigor
The materials are divided into six sections including an introduction, domestication, hybrid vigor
, genome sequencing, jumping genes, and biofortification.
Utilization of hybrid vigor
seems to be the best option to ensure food security worldwide.
Many breeders favor crossing Watusi with Texas Longhorns; Watusi are already built for horns and the product is a well-built calf with good hybrid vigor
. Watusi can also, surprisingly enough, bring some good traits to the table with the dairy market as well; breeding Watusi into a dairy herd will boost the butterfat levels of the milk.
Bacterial transconjugants were evaluated for their hybrid vigor
in relation to the mid parents and better parent.
The study by CSHL researchers has revealed one genetic mechanism for hybrid vigor
, a property of plant breeding that has been exploited to boost yield since the early 20th century.
Interspecific crossing is also an effective method for exploiting hybrid vigor
in many aquatic animals, including molluscs (Menzel 1977, Zouros et al.
