Genetic analysis of grain yield in pigeonpea using male sterile lines

Genetic analysis of grain yield in pigeonpea using male sterile lines

Indian Journal of Pulses Research 5(1): 9-14

Three male sterile pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) lines (MS-3A, MS-4A and MS-Prabhat) were used as female parents and pollinated by 7 fertile testers, chosen for their wide genetic and geographical diversity. The 10 parents and 21 F1 hybrids were planted in 1982. Data for yield and 6 other agronomic traits were recorded on randomly selected fertile plants and analysed for combining ability. GCA variance was higher than SCA for yield, pods/plant, seeds/pod, seed size and days to flowering.
