Abstract:

10 bread wheat genotypes were crossed in diallel fashion excluding reciprocals. The F1s and the parental lines were then utilised for combining ability analysis. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed the presence of significant variation for all four quality traits. ANOVA showed highly significant estimates of mean square for general combining ability for sedimentation value, hectolitre weight and phenol colour reaction however for protein content it was significant. Mean square for specific combining ability was highly significant for sedimentation value and phenol colour reaction while for protein content and hectolitre weight it was non-significant. Parental line UP 2762, KFA/2*KACHU and Raj 4419 showed superior general combining ability for more than one quality traits. On the basis of high per se performance and significant SCA effects in desired direction Raj 4419 x PBW 729, KAUZ/ALTAR84/3/MILAN/KAUZ/4/HUITES x UP 2762, PBW 729 x DBW 50 and Raj 4419 x NIAW 1594 were identified as superior cross combiners for protein content, sedimentation value, hectolitre weight and phenol colour reaction. These crosses can therefore be exploited commercially either in development of hybrid varieties with improved quality traits or in recovery of superior transgressive segregants which can be used for isolation of superior homozygous lines.
