Xiaofei Zhang, Hernan Ceballos. (31/12/2021). Selecting Partial Inbred Clones and Exploring Heterosis in Cassava Report.
CIAT started exploring the heterosis in cassava and made selfing of 23 clones, of which 20 clones have high dry matter, and three have high beta-carotene to determine the heterotic pattern, either identifying or creating heterotic pools. It will be performed testcross to understand the heterotic pattern of the progenitors' S1 families, and to select the testers from the released varieties with all the preferred traits.
