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.
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 aim of the proposed project is to produce and offer to both private and public wheat breeding programs information and/or hybrid wheat seeds obtained from selected crosses found to possess great potentials for the expression of heterosis (hybrid vigor) for grain weight and size.
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.
