Analysis on gene effects for leaf characters in sorghum

Analysis on gene effects for leaf characters in sorghum

Acta Agriculturae Sinica, Supplement ( 1): 171-174

Effects of the gene combinations a, b, d, aa, ab and dd on length, width, area and angle of the six uppermost leaves were estimated using data collected from P1, P2, F1, F2, BC1 and BC2 generations. The results indicated that the angles between the leaves and main stem were controlled mainly by additive effects, although dominant effects were also important. Epistatic effects were involved in some crosses. Additive and dominant effects were of equal importance to leaf length, width and area.
