This document describes the key outcomes from the final phase of a crop improvement program conducted at two sites – Wildman River, Northern Territory and Dimbulah, north Queensland. The improvement program commenced in 1988 and produced over 4000 new hybrids of which 590 of the most promising were intensively assessed during 1998 and 1999 and reported here. Following phenotypic and genetic analyses of hybrids grown at each site, the highest yielding hybrids and parents for further breeding were identified.
