Variability and covariability for plant height, heading date, and seed weight in wheat crosses



Variability and covariability for plant height, heading date, and seed weight in wheat crosses



Tag. Theoretical and Applied Genetics. Theoretische und Angewandte Genetik 41(3): 100-103



Variability, covariability, heritability and expected genetic gains from selection for the three traits were estimated in progenies derived from six wheat crosses. The crosses differed in the magnitude of the genetic variabilities of their progenies but all crosses showed significant variability for all traits. Heritability estimates averaged 86% for heading date, 77% for height and 70% for grain weight.
