RESEARCH ON EXPRESSION OF GENERAL COMBINATION CAPABILITY IN CERTAIN INBRED CORN CROSSES IN DIALEL SYSTEM PUBLISHEDDana Lucia Suba firstname.lastname@example.org
Knowledge of the general combining ability, ie the additive genetic component passed on by a parent to all his offspring, has a very high practical relevance in corn breeding programs. The objective of the research was to evaluate the additive genetic effects (general combining ability). The overall ability to combine inbred lines is particularly important in making valuable hybrids. By crossing known inbred lines with a high overall combining capability (for production or for another character) in a dialel system, it is normal to carry out a hierarchy of the respective inbred lines.
