SPEHAR, Carlos Roberto  and  SANTOS, Roberto Lorena de Barros. Agronomic performance of quinoa selected in the Brazilian Savannah. Pesq. agropec. bras. [online]. 2005, vol.40, n.6, pp.609-612. ISSN 1678-3921.

Twenty six breeding lines, selected from individual plant progenies of hybrids among varieties Amarilla de Marangani, Blanca de Junín, Chewecca, Faro 4, Improved Baer, Kancolla, Real, and Salares-Roja, had their agronomic characters evaluated, in Planaltina, DF, Brazil (15º36'S and 47º12'W), 1,000 masl, in randomized complete blocks, on a Ferralsol, previously limed and fertilized. Grain yield was positively associated with plant height, inflorescence length and diameter, and plant cycle. Genetic gain can be attained by selection based in these characters for commercial production of quinoa in tropical regions.
