Selection indices including several sources of information do not maximize genetic response after the first generation of selection. Generation of linkage disequilibrium induced by selection reduces both genetic and phenotypic variances. In this paper a procedure to obtain selection index weights to maximize response in the limit, by accommodating the changes in genetic and phenotypic variances induced by selection is described. Benefits in response were very small for the example considered .
