We found that, depending on the population size, a TPPS was 1.5 to 4.4 times more accurate than a TPH, and TPH optimization based on the mean of the generalized coefficient of determination or prediction error variance enabled the selection of subsets that led to significantly higher accuracy than randomly selected subsets. Retaining historical data when data on close relatives were available lead to a 11.9% increase in accuracy, at best, and a 12% decrease in accuracy, at worst, depending on the heritability.

Genomic selection (GS) is a methodology that can improve crop breeding efficiency.
