Abstract: The objective was to optimise the strategy for maintaining the genetic balance in long-term breeding where the grandparents contribute equally to the breeding population, but the parents do not. The annual genetic progress under a budget constraint was compared for a number of scenarios. The factors considered were: genetic parameters, recruitment population size, mating number per grandparent, cost of plants and parents, selection age and time components. Phenotypic selection forward was assumed. Using more parents than grandparents affects the testing population only, thus, gene diversity loss and breeding population size remain constant. Using larger number of parents than grandparents was a superior strategy at all scenarios tested. The strategy with 6 parents per grandparent and 1% of the tested plants selected on their phenotype at age 15 for further mating is recommendable. The strategy to choose 6 parents per grandparent was robust over a heritability range 0.05 to 0.2. At a higher heritability, the optimum number of parents per grandparent was 2 to 4. Using larger number of parents than grandparents has the potential to improve annual genetic gain in the magnitude of 50% compared to the strategies currently used for Scots pine in Sweden
