Six lines and three testers were used to make crosses as per line x tester analysis, ten characters including quantitative and qualitative traits were tested for gcaand sca in F1’s and their parents. The results were indicative of predominance of non additive gene actions for all the traits studied. The variances of general combining ability (gca) and specific combining ability (sca) were highly significant. Based on the gcaeffects of parents, the line IR 58029-99-3-1-3 (L5) and tester BR 4828… 


It was observed that best performing genotypes such as NVSR-178 and NAUR-1 could be the potential source of breeding material for improvement in aerobic rice and high heterotic response observed for productive tillers per plant, panicle length, number grains per panicle and test weight was clear.

Heterosis and Combining ability Estimates using Line x Tester Analysis to Develop Wide Compatibility and Restorer Lines in Rice

This investigation was conducted at Agriculture Research Station, Sakha, Kafr El-Sheikh, Egypt, during 2017 and 2018 rice seasons to study combining ability, gene action, heterosis, and degree of

Combining ability analysis of some yield components in rice (Oryza sativa L.)

With diallel cross of seven varieties of rice, Biser-2, Ranka and S-136 are the best combiners for panicle length, Bisers-2 and Ranka for number of grains per panicle and Biser -2 for grains mass per panicles.

Studies on combining ability for yield and yield attributes in rice ( Oryza sativa L . )

Study on combining ability was carried out at two locations (CRS Masaudha, Faizabad and GPB Farm, Kumarganj, Faizabad) and in two seasons (Kharif, 2012 and Kharif, 2013) for grain yield and yield

Gene action and combining ability for grain yield and yield related traits in rice (Oryza sativa L.)

Predominance of dominance gene action for all the traits studied except for flag leaf width and number of spikelets per panicle suggests heterosis breeding must be strongly pursued for exploitation of the yield advantage over the inbred varieties.

Gene action and combining ability estimates of newly developed CMS based heterotic rice hybrids (Oryza sativa L.)

CMS 2 and KMR 3 are identified as promising lines which can be used in further breeding pro- gramme and SCA variances were higher than the GCA variances for all the characters which indicated preponderance of non-additive gene action.

Heterosis and combining ability analysis for grain yield and its component traits in aerobic rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars.

The crosses RMD(R)1/ARB 7, ADT48/ARB6, PMK3/ARB7 and MDU5/Anjali were identified as the best combinations for aerobic conditions on the basis of high mean, significant sca effects and high standard heterosis.

over Environments in High Lines of Maize ( Zea mays

The experimental material comprised of 66 F1’s generated by crossing twelve diverse inbred lines of maize(Zea mays L.) in a half diallel fashion and their parents were evaluated in RBD in two

Genetic combining ability estimates in the F1 and F2 generations for yield, its component traits and alkaloid content in opium poppy (Papaver somniferum L.)

Inclusion of good general combiners in a multiple crossing program or an intermating population involving all the possible crosses among them subjected to bi-parental mating may be expected to offer maximum promise in breeding for higher opium, seed yield and alkaloid contents.

Heterosis and combining ability for yield and yield attributing traits in rice

In the present investigation, combining ability study was undertaken by crossing four rice lines and five testers in Line x Tester fashion. The ratio of GCA and SCA was less than unity for all the
