Inheritance of grain length, breadth and shape were studied in three crosses, viz. Pankaj x
Badsahbhog; S 214 x Mahsuri and S 214 x S 260. The characters were largely controlled by
polygene., although evidence ofmajorgenes governing the traits in some crosses were also
observed. Transgressive segregation for the chuacters was observed in two crosses.
Keywords: Grain length, breadth and shape, polygenes, major genes, transgressive segregation.
