Line xtester analysis of sixty crosses was done with a view to identify the gca and sca effects
of five female and twelve male parents in wheat. Percentage of F2 plants was taken into
consideration in all these crosses. RL 6010/5* Ska, a backcross derivative of Sonalika with
Lr 9 and Shanghai 4 of Chinese origin were found to be the best general and specific
combiners for breeding for resistance to H. sativum isolates. The degree of dominance
showed dominant genes action and narrow sense heritability to be low.
Keywords: Line X tester analysis, foliar blight, combining ability, wheat.
