In 1986, ACB resistant inbred development with ClMMYT's MBR population was initiated. Several resistant inbreds, such as MC37, MC61, MC74, HM31 and HM67, with potential for use in hybrid crosses, were developed by selfing and selecting highly resistant types within each selfed generation after artificial infestation with ACB at whorl stage. On the basis of this work-together with additional support from CIMMYT in the form of highly resistant maize populations, financial contributions, vigorous efforts to promote cooperation between entomologists and breeders, and advanced training for young scientists-we began a new project to develop A CB-resistant inbreds using MBR-590 and the CIMMYT multiple insect resistance tropical population, MIRT-390. Finally, we describe a successful adaptation of "bazooka" technique in China.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
