Abstract Progeny from a six-parent half-diallel of diverse peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) cultivars were evaluated for the F1 through F5 generations for presence of epistatic effects. Significant variability attributable to specific combining ability (SCA) persisted over generations for yield and other seed characters. Epistasis was indicated since dominance could account for little of the variance due to SCA in the F5 generation. Estimates of dominance and epistatic variance components were… CONTINUE READING
