Estimation of genetic variation in an improved population of maize (Zea mays L.)


, : Estimation of genetic variation in an improved population of maize (Zea mays L.). Madras Agricultural Journal 79(12): 714-719

Information on genetic variance, heritability and genetic gain is derived from data on grain moisture content at harvest, days to 50% silking, plant height and ear height in full-sib progenies from biparental progenies (selected and developed during 1984 at Pantnagar) of an early white semiflint maize composite (D-742) grown during kharif 1985 at Pantnagar and Delhi.
