dc.description The article begins with a brief history of corn in the United States. It shifts to the topic of a few improved synthetic varieties that fall into the early maturity groups. Several of these were being developed at the NDAES as possible sources of future inbred lines. NDSA and NDSB were the first synthetics released. At this writing, the new synthetics, NDSC and NDSD, were new synthetics for use in corn breeding programs for the further development of additional hybrids for extremely short season areas as the the state of North Dakota. ND249, ND250 and ND 251 were new yellow dent inbred lines developed in the corn improvement project. For the effective usage of these inbreds and synthetics, one must possess or have access to knowledge regarding their ancestries and breeding behaviors. While many experimental hybrids tests were not deemed as being suitable for economic commercial production, their breeding behavior(s) may suggest ways to best utilize these desired genetic materials in a breeding program. The breeding history, the agronomic description, inbred performance, the hybrid performance, the synthetic performance and the seed increase and the distribution of ND249, ND250, ND251, NDSC and NDSD are reviewed in this article.
