Developed for rapid line development. FB method successfully validated in F2 and F3 breeding cycles using ~9,000 segregants from multiple pedigree crosses (close to 100% selection accuracy was identified). This integrated marker breeding method can reduce ~50% of the time for GMS line development and save huge cost for commercial hybrid Seed production through GMS every year.
