Assessment of inbreeding depression tolerance of local maize germplasm
Hiramani Barman, Nagendra Sarma Barua and Ramesh Kanna M
We carried out an experiment to study the inbreeding depression tolerance of maize germplasm. The field experiment was conducted at Assam Agricultural University during rabi season of 2019-2020. Six germplasm and their corresponding S1 lines and one check hybrid were evaluated at randomized block design with two replications. Analysis of variance revealed that all the entries differed significantly for all the traits except moisture content. The entries namely, ARW1, ARY5, ARR1 and ASKAW1 which showed the minimum level of inbreeding depression from studies on inbreeding depression, can be used as components for developing high yielding and inbreeding tolerant composite variety in future.
