epistasis for most of the characters ex~ept seed weight per panicle. In the absence of
epistasis, additive components (variance for sums) were significant for all the traits while
the dominance components (variance for differences) were significant only for six
characters. The estimates of additive (D) and dominance (H) components were highly
significant for most of the traits, although, the D component was higher than H.
