COMBINING ABILITY AND INHERITANCE OF FIBRE FINENESS IN DIPLOID COTTONS: A COMPARISON FOR Fl AND F2 GENERATIONS

Published on

An experiment with eight established varieties of Asiatic cottons were used for
nonreciprocal diallel crossing. Intrinsic fineness was evaluated in Fl and F2 generations.
Combining ability and genetic components were found out. Fibre fineness was governed
by additive type of gene action. In both generations, general combining ability was
significant.
  

Keywords: Combining ability, intrinsic fineness, hybrid vigour.
