Characterization of topcross
progenies from Hereford, Limousine, and Piedmontese sires.
seed for initial yield trials was produced using LH185 and the sister line cross FR697 x FR615 as testers.
Limited yield performance tests of NPM-5 and NPM-6 topcross
hybrids indicates the germplasms have fair to good combining ability for grain yield with medium-early maturity seed parents.
[S.sub.2] progeny lines (70 from Iowa and 100 from Ohio) were planted in the winter (1998-1999) topcross
isolation nursery and testcrosses were made using the elite proprietary inbred LH185, a non-BSSS related line.
