Precision of variance component estimators with inbred parents in design 1 of North Carolina

Revista Fitotecnia Mexicana 1998; 20(1): 1-12

Precision of variance component estimators with inbred parents in design 1 of North Carolina

The low precision in the estimation of variance components is probably the most important problem to be overcome by the breeder when the design 1 of North Carolina is applied to generate reliable information on the genetic variability of a population and the experimental environment. Among the strategies that can be applied to increase precision is increasing the sample size of males and females and increasing the number of replicates.
