Dynamism of the breeding program for irrigated rice in Southeast Brazil

The estimation of the genotypic replacement rate is aimed at evaluating the performance of breeding programs. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the dynamics of the genetic improvement program of flooded rice, developed in Minas Gerais, during the period from 1993 to 2016. We evaluated 210 lines in three environments between 1993 and 2016, in blocks, ranging from three to four re.. Read More»

Evaluation of the efficiency of artificial neural networks for genetic value prediction

    G.N. Silva, R.S. Tomaz, I.C. Sant’Anna, V.Q. Carneiro, C.D. Cruz and M. Nascimento

Artificial neural networks have shown great potential when applied to breeding programs. In this study, we propose the use of artificial neural networks as a viable alternative to conventional prediction methods. We conduct a thorough evaluation of the efficiency of these networks with respect to the prediction of breeding values. Therefore, we considered eight simulated scenarios, and for the .. Read More»

Artificial neural networks as auxiliary tools for the improvement of bean plant architecture

lassification using a scale of visual notes is a strategy used to select erect bean plants in order to improve bean plant architectures. Use of morphological traits associated with the phenotypic expression of bean architecture in classification procedures may enhance selection. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of artificial neural networks .. Read More»
