POTENTIALITIES OF HETEROSIS BREEDING IN PISUM

Published on

Economic heterosis for dry seed yield in 66 hybrids of pea (Pisum sati'l1um L.) has been
recorded up to 680/•. Mean BP heterosis was maximum in the crosses involving exotic X
exotic parents. Heterosis for yield was generally accompanied by heterosis for pods/plant.
Two crosses, viz., T 163 X Bonneville and T 163 X Sel-~ could be considered promising
heterotic crosses. Possil)ilities for the exploitation of hybrid vigour in pea are discussed.
 

Keywords: Pisum sativum L., economic heterosis, residual hetero:;is.
