Then it is not to be surprised that Jersey x Holstein cows had lower vaginal temperatures during much of the day than Holstein or Jerseys suggests that thermotolerance is another trait controlled by heterosis
(Dikmen et al., 2009).
in different crosses of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.).
Our results and the results from other researchers support the scope of heterosis
breeding or the exploitation of hybrid vigour in sunflower breeding.
The mean value of the OPV check was used to calculate the standard heterosis
. The parent with the highest mean value was used as better parent in the calculation of high-parent heterosis
while the average between the two parents was used for the mid-parent heterosis
and recombination effects on pig growth and carcass traits.
Diallel analysis of combining ability and heterosis
for yield and yield components in rice by using positive loci.
This study is aiming to detect and evaluate QTLs controlling grain yield and its component traits using datasets of the RILs, testcross [F.sub.1]s, and the mid-parent heterosis
and to analyze the genetic basis of heterosis
over mid parent value (MP) as per Turner, 1953, Heterosis
over better parent (BP) as per Fonseca and Patterson, 1968 and Standard heterosis
(SH) using standard check as per Meredith and Bridge, 1972 were calculated.
