EXPLOITING GENE EFFECTS FOR IMPROVING BULB YIELD IN ONION

Published on

The results of the studies conducted by Joshi and Tandon [1) suggested the possibilities
of exploiting fixable heterosis in the form of general gene effects and additive x
additive type of gene interaction in cross combination IN-13 x L 43 for the genetic
improvement and bulb yield in onion. This genetic information helped in the development
and release of first high yielding open pollinated onion variety 'VL Piaz 3' for the
hill region of U.P.
