The method of analysis of diallel crosses when one or two observations are missing has
been developed for Griffing Method I, II and III. The formulae for obtaining estimates of
various parameters involving the missing line or otherwise along with their estimates of
variances are given. The ANOVA tables for combining ability analysis for all the three
methods are also presented. It has been observed that extension of the technique for more
than two missing observations is quite simple and straightforward.
