COMBINING ABILITY STUDIES IN BREADWHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM L. EM THELL) UNDER SALT STRESS ENVIRONMENTS

Published on

Combining ability for grain yield and other related characters under salt stress conditions
was studied in a set of dialIel crosses involving ten cultivars of breadwheat. Both additive
and nonadditive gene effects were important in. the inheritance of most of the traits. The
parent varieties HD 2285, KRL 1-4 and PBW 65 and cross KRL 3-4 X KRL 1-4 had high gca
and sca, respectively, and they could be utilized for further selection of high yielding
progenies under salt stress conditions.
 

Keywords: Triticum aestivum, combining ability, salt stress.
