Analysis of growth in the oil palm. II. Estimation of genetic variances of growth parameters and yield of fruit bunches



Analysis of growth in the oil palm. II. Estimation of genetic variances of growth parameters and yield of fruit bunches



Euphytica 21(2): 257-264



Vegetative and yield measurements made in breeding experiments provided estimates of genetic variance for yield of fruit bunches, crop growth rate, leaf area, leaf area index, leaf area ratio, vegetative dry matter production and bunch index (dry matter in fruit bunches/total dry matter). The results indicate genetic variability for these traits, and that BI, LAI and VDM have a reasonable level of genetic control.
