Analysis of diallel crosses within two groups of ten inbred lines (one group selected from the cross Iwanaizairai A [Iwanai Local A] X N85 and one group of diverse origin) showed that additive gene effects were important in introducing heterosis, for the characters studied, in the F1 population from similar-parent material and that nonadditive effects appeared when the parental material was derived from diverse sources.
