In the original version of the article, an error was detected in the simulation of breeding scheme S1TC-DHTC. This error led to an overestimation of the selection gain (\(\Updelta\widehat{G}^*\)) and the probability of selecting superior genotypes (\(\widehat{P}(q)^*\)) in this breeding scheme. The corrected results for all selection strategies of breeding scheme S1TC-DHTC in Tables 2 and 3, as well as Fig. 1 are presented in the following pages.

Table 2 Optimum allocation of test resources maximizing the optimization criteria (OC), selection gain (\(\Updelta\widehat{G}^*\)) and the probability of selecting superior genotypes (\(\widehat{P}(0.1\%)^*\)), in two-stage selection with evaluation of testcross progenies of (1) DH lines at both stages (DHTC) and (2) S1 families at first stage and DH lines of S1 families at second stage (S1TC-DHTC)
Table 3 Optimum allocation of test resources maximizing the optimization criteria (OC), selection gain (\(\Updelta\widehat{G}^*\)) and the probability of selecting superior genotypes (\(\widehat{P}(0.1\%)^*\)), in two-stage selection with evaluation of testcross progenies of (1) DH lines at both stages (DHTC–2a) and (2) S1 families at first stage and DH lines of S1 families at second stage (S1TC-DHTC–2c) and its dependence on the phenotypic correlation ρ P (between the mean performance of the parents and the mean genotypic value of the testcross performance of their progenies), the variance component ratios (VC), and the budget in terms of testcross plot equivalents
