Wheat; Six Parameter Models; Gene Effects
The is objective of the study was to estimate gene effects for quantities and qualitative traits viz., Plant height, no of tillers per plant, no of spiklets per spike, no of grains per spike, grain weight per ear head, grain yield per plant (g), Days to heading, Protein content(%), Sedimentation value (ml), Beta carotene content (ppm) and 1000 seed wt.(g) using six generations of eight crosses was carried out during rabi season at two locations. Analysis of Variance revealed highly significant differences among the wheat genotypes for all the characters. In case of plot basis observations, the characters were mostly governed by dominance gene effects.
