Abstract:

The investigation was carried out to study the general combining ability and specific combining ability in genotypes and their cross combinations for yield and quality characters. Six tomato lines, fifteen cross combinations derived from 6×6 half diallel fashion with Arka Rakshak as check cultivar/line were taken for the experiment. Study revealed the predominance of non-additive gene effects for number of fruit clusters per plant, number of fruits per cluster, number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit breadth, marketable fruit yield per plant, shelf life, pericarp thickness, TSS, ascorbic acid and whitefly infestation. AVTO-9001× Sioux and Solan Lalima × Sioux were the best specific cross combinations which has high positive significant effects for plant height, number of fruit clusters per plant, fruit length, fruit breadth, average fruit weight, fruit volume, marketable fruit yield per plant and ascorbic acid.


Keywords: General combining ability, Specific combining ability, Non-additive, Half diallel fashion
