Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to assessment the nature and magnitude of heterosis for grain yield and its contributing traits using 10 x 10 half-diallel fashion under normal sown condition. The maximum heterosis range has been assessed for yield and its contributing traits. The heterosis ranged observed for grain yield per plant from -4.84 per cent to 67.82 per cent. Among the eleven crosses, two crosses DPW 621-50 x Raj 4079 and Raj 4037 x Raj 4079 exhibiting desired significant heterosis and heterobeltiosis for yield and its contributing traits. These crosses might be exploited for finding transgressive segregants for improvement of yield and yield contributing traits in bread wheat
