NTP6212EaSY Compared to SGI162

 

NTP6212EaSY has emerged as a consistent performer over a large geographical area.  In the present study going from Council Bluffs in the western Corn Belt to Chillicothe, OH in the east and to Charleston, MO in the south, 6212EaSY x SGI157 delivered an additional 16 bushels per acre in yield compared to SGI162 x SGI157.  Further studies with more locations are planned for 2021.  Likewise, it would be highly desirable to test 6212EaSY in combination with other male parents.

NTP3201EaSY and its Sister Lines

 

In a small study reported in 2019 (click here), NTP3201EaSY performed exceptionally well.  As a follow-up, 3201EaSY has now been compared to three of its sister lines.  As before, the male parent was SGI157.  Check hybrids were SGI162 x SGI157 and NTP3201EaSY x MBS9451.  The tests were conducted at five locations. *

In general, the results in 2020 confirmed those of 2019.  NTP3201EaSY had a grain yield that was 18 bushels/acre higher than SGI162. Furthermore, in combination with MBS9451, 3201EaSY delivered an additional 26 bushels per acre of yield compared to SGI162 x SGI157.  Large-scale tests will be needed to confirm these results.

NTP3300 x MBS9508 Hybrids

As reported previously in 2019 (click here), hybrids in the NTP3300EaSY series are superior to SGI162. The purpose of this study was to confirm those results, but with a different male, in this case, MBS9508. Check hybrids were NTP3201EaSY x MBS9508 and MBS2747 x MBS9508. The data presented below are from six locations.* 

 As in 2019, NTP3302EaSY was superior compared to other lines in the 3300 series. Also, compared to NTP3201EaSY, 3302EaSY had essentially the same yield, but with lower grain moisture. Likewise, 3302EaSY had 10 bushels/acre less yield compared to MBS2747, but was considerably drier at harvest.

NT3300EaSY x SGI187 Hybrids

NT3300EaSY is the first project to employ an EaSY source other than B73EaSY.  In this case, a breeding population was created from a 50:50 bulk of NTP3200EaSY lines (click here for this year's data) lines and another set of lines that were developed as a source of early-season vigor.  Overall, the breeding population was primarily B73 and B37 with open-pollinated germplasm comprising about 6% of the breeding material.  Ten lines were evaluated in a two-replication test at five locations - three in Iowa (Atlantic, Huxley, Reinbeck) and two in northern Illinois (Geneseo, Tonica).  SGI187 was the male parent.  SGI162 x SGI187 served as the check hybrid.

NTP3200EaSY x Elite Male Inbreds


In a post from 2018, the performance of NTP3200EaSY lines in combination with SGI083 was reported (click here).  In the current post, performance with an additional three inbreds (SGI 157, SGI 161, SGI 187) as the male is highlighted.  In each case, the best EaSY line is compared to the normal version.  All data are the average of two replications at two locations in Iowa (Atlantic, Fairfield).
