The nature of genetic variation in an intervarietal cross ('WG 377' × 'Sonalika') of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em Thell.) was determined for grain yield and tillers per plant by analyzing 21 generation means and 36 family variances. For both traits, duplicate epistasis of linked loci in the pairs and gene dispersion was observed through the analysis of 21 generation means. The analysis of generation variances further suggested repulsion phase linkages for the gene pairs. The additive… CONTINUE READING
