VIANA, José Marcelo Soriano  and  CRUZ, Cosme Damião. Combined selection in early generation testing of self-pollinated plants. Braz. J. Genet. [online]. 1997, vol.20, n.4, pp.-. ISSN 0100-8455.

Seven selection indexes based on the phenotypic value of the individual and the mean performance of its family were assessed for their application in breeding of self-pollinated plants. There is no clear superiority from one index to another although some show one or more negative aspects, such as favoring the selection of a top performing plant from an inferior family in detriment of an excellent plant from a superior family
