 Genetic parameters (narrow-sense heritabilities and genetic correlations) were estimated for major agronomical traits in apple from large unbalanced data sets, with the help of wide-pedigree information. The software REML VCE (Groeneveld 1996) took into account the complex pedigree of the French apple-breeding population, thanks to the restricted maximum likelihood procedure combined with the construction of the entire relationship matrix between hybrids planted in the field and their… CONTINUE READING
