Estimation of combining ability in eri silkworm Samia cynthia ricini Boisduval for pupal and allied traits

Five parental breeds of Samia cynthia ricini, i.e., WP, WZ, GP, GS and GZ differed in their general combining ability for rate of pupation, pupal weight, pupal duration, moth emergence, sex ratio, fecundity and hatching. WP was a good general combiner.

Estimates are given of genetic parameters for 17 characters in Samia cynthia ricini. High heritability was shown by fecundity, maximum larval weight, cocoon yield by weight, cocoon yield by number, effective rate of rearing, and rates of adult eme...
