Combining Ability & Heterois Studies

Rajashekaraiah, (1979): Studies on genetic inheritance of six quantitative characters in a cross between Hebbal avare-1 x US-8.
Singh et al. (1980): Combining ability and inheritance studies through diallel in beans (Dolichos lablab).
Chikkadeviah et al., (1981): Heterosis in field bean.

The percentage of heterosis for seed yield in F1s over their respective mid-parents ranged from 1.61 to 293.11 and over the better parent, the range was 44.21 to 166.91. Three top-crosses involved low x high yielding parental lines; out of 6, which did not express significance, 4 crosses fell in low x low group. In almost all the crosses, heterosis in yield was accompanied by heterosis in pod number/plant. Negative heterotic effects were recorded for 100 seed weight over better parent in most of the crosses. Pods per plant contributed positively to yield of F1s followed by pod width.
