The effects of selection were: the proportions of the variances of traits under direct selection were considerably lower within selection lines than overall and this was associated with a loss of correlation between traits. Unselected traits showed higher proportions of variances remaining within the selection lines and shifts from non-significant to significant correlations from the plants overall to selection lines. The significance of these results and their relevance to strategies of germplasm improvement is discussed.",
