GENETICS AND ORDER EFFECTS OF SEED WEIGHT IN GROUNDNUT - A TRIALLEL ANALYSIS

Published on

Seed size is an important yield and quality traits in groundnut. The genetic
investigations of seed size in ground nut have given contradictory results with
regards to the relative importance of additive [I, 2], non additive [3, 4] and epistatic
[5] effects. Tne present attempt, therefore, was made to further analyse the gene
action of seed size by triallel analysis [6-8] which provides information not only on
additive, dominance and epistasis type of gene actions but also about the order
effect of the parents in three way crosses.
