Estimation of combining ability of inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.)



Estimation of combining ability of inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.)



Biuletyn Instytutu Hodowli i Aklimatyzacji Roslin (240/241): 185-190



The offspring of 6 maternal dent lines crossed with 8 testers were investigated at 2 locations in Poland. Data were recorded for grain yield, dry matter content, lodging before harvest, tillering and smutted plants. Analyses of general (GCA) and specific combining ability (SCA) were done. There were significant differences between environments for all traits. Interactions of the GCA and SCA effects with environments were significant for all traits except grain yield.
