Abstract

Genetic analysis of generation means indicated that the additive gene effects were predominant for glossiness, trichome density, per cent dead hearts, while both additive and dominance gene effects were found important for number of eggs per plant, per cent plants having eggs and grain yield per plant. As regards the non-allelic interactions, additive x additive was found important for most of the characters. The predominance of additive and additive x additive gene effects suggest that the selection would be more effective for improvement in shootfly resistance in combinations with other desirable attributes
