  • This study was conducted to estimate combining ability, gene action and proportional contribution of cross components in some maize genotypes under different irrigation conditions. In 2007 in Research Farm of Islamic Azad University, fifteen maize inbred lines as parents, consist of twelve females ( No:4-15) and three males ( NO:1-3) were crossed to produce 36 F 1 hybrids. Parents and their 36 F 1 hybrids were evaluated in a RCB design with three replications under irrigation after 70, 90 and… CONTINUE READING
