higher branch production and lower blind node incidence than FG × ‘Tardy Nonpareil’ almond (TNP) hybrids. Two selections from P. kan F 1 : seedling number 3 [chilling requirement 300 chill units (CU)] and seedling number 6 (300 CU), and one selection from

achieved by shortening the ear rather than actually lengthening the husk. The goals of this research were to determine the feasibility of selecting a sweet corn population for longer husks without shortening the ears, to determine whether direct selection

recurrent selection at −0.8 MPa increased germination of sand bluestem ( Andropogon hallii ) nearly 2-fold in vitro ( Springer, 2011 ; Springer et al., 2014 ). In the field, establishment increased 16.4% compared with the base population ( Springer et al
