In a yield trial in 1976 in Samaru and Kano, Nigeria, cycle 2 S1 selection of the composite populations Nigerian and World, and cycle 3 S1 selection of the local variety Ex-Borno, gave an expected improvement in grain yield of 12 to 16% of the population mean, equivalent to 4.64-6.83 q/ha. [See also PBA 48, 2289]. Results of a yield trial at Samaru of selected S2 entries of each composite indicated that S1 selection was more efficient than S1 followed by S2 selection
