EFFECTIVENESS OF SIBMATING IN WHEAT BREEDING

Published on

The effectiveness of sibmatingwas comparedwith conventionalselfing in two intervarietal
crosses, WH 416 X UNC 1 and HSW 147 X Kalyan Sona of breadwheat. Sibmating proved
to be more effective in improving the mean performance for most of the characters studied
in both the crosses. The lower limit of the range in sibs also improved in desired direction
for most characters. Sibs population maintained sufficientlyhigh genetic variation for most
of the characters in HSW 147 X Kalyan Sona but the reverse trend was observed in WH 416
XUNC 1. Sibs also exhibited improvement in the heritAbility estimates and genetic advance
for some of the characters.
