It is important to know the degree and direction of hybrid vigor for its commercial exploitation. Heterobeltiosis and standard heterosis were studied in 14 crosses between rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars (improved and landraces) and three wild aborted male sterile parents. These crosses showed marked variations in the expression of heterobeltiosis and standard heterosis for yield and yield components. Grain yield manifested highly significant heterobeltiosis and standard heterosis in five… CONTINUE READING
