Performance of diallel crosses and second generation synthetics of alfalfa derived from partly inbred parents. I. Forage yield


, : Performance of diallel crosses and second generation synthetics of alfalfa derived from partly inbred parents. I. Forage yield. Crop Science 16(2): 247-251

Combining ability for forage yield in Medicago sativa under conditions of strong interplant competition was evaluated from diallel crosses among selected parents which had been partly inbred by selfing. The performance of first and second generation synthetics was also studied. Generally combining ability (GCA) variance was considerably larger than specific combining ability (SCA) variance for all generations of parental inbreeding (S0 to S4).
