Two methods of estimating genetic and environmental variances from a simultaneous selfing and partial diallel test crossing design were evaluated numerically and compared. Estimation by the method of unweighted least squares on observed mean squares and products is usually better than the method of unweighted least squares on design variance components. Optimal allocations of design parameters were considered for the estimation of each component of variance. The efficient estimation of all… CONTINUE READING
