The use of bulk F2 and F3 yield tests to predict the performance of durum wheat crosses


, : The use of bulk F2 and F3 yield tests to predict the performance of durum wheat crosses. Canadian Journal of Plant Science 74(2): 241-245

Bulk F2 and F3 generation yield tests were carried out on 17 durum wheat (Triticum turgidum) crosses (7 single and 10 double crosses involving a total of 24 parents) during 1985-87 to determine if they could be used to predict the performance of lines selected from the crosses. The amount of variation for yield within crosses was also measured to see if there were differences among crosses.
