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

, : Precision of variance component estimators with inbred parents in design 1 of North Carolina. Revista Fitotecnia Mexicana 1998; 20(1): 1-12

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.

Estimators are investigated in this light, and expr...
