Consistency of the results of dianel, partial dianel and line x tester analysis in mustard
(Brassicajuncea L. Czern & Coss) was studied. The size of the dianel was8 x 8, partial diane1
with s=5 and s=3, and line x tester with 1=6 and t=2. The diane1cross analysis emerged as
the most comprehensive and useful method of understanding the gene effects governing
expression of quantitative traits. In partial diane1using s=5, the results were fairly close to
that of dianel analysis. The line x tester may be preferred when large number of lines are
to be tested.
Keywords: Diallel cross, line x tester, mustard.
