EFFECTIVENESS OF INDIVIDUAL PLANT SELECTION IN EARLY GENERATIONS OF BREAD WHEAT

Published on

Reliability of individual plant selection was tested for graln yield, plant height,
effective tillers, total dry matter, grain per spike, kernel weight and harvest index
in five F2 populations of bread wheat. Plants were selected for each of the seven
charaders in positive and negative directions in F2 generation and selection response
was measured in F3 generation. Inter- generation correlation coefficients and realized
heritability estimates were also computed for all the seven characters in the five
F2'S. Individual plant selection for plant height and for kernel weight was found
to be effective while, it was ineffective for the remaining characters.
 

Keywords: Triticum aestivum, Early generation selection, realized heritability.
