Abstract:

A field study with 12 x 3 Line x Tester analysis in cucumber and snapmelon revealed highly significant estimates for general combining ability and specific combining ability for all the traits thereby indicating the importance of both additive and non-additive genetic variance in the inheritance of these traits. The genotyped L3 and L2 were found to be the most promising per se for most of the trait, whereas the cross combination L3 x T3, L2 x T2 involving good x good general combiner parents was found with good desirable sca effects. The cross combination L7 x T1 was found with best SCA effect for T.S.S. To further improve yield and quality traits inclusion of F1 combinations with high SCA and parents with good GCA in multiple crosses, Line x Tester mating could be a worthwhile approach.
