Data of potato, Heterosis

Description

Determination of heterosis, general combining ability (GCA) and specific combining ability in tuber dry matter, reducing sugars and agronomic characteristics in TPS families.

Details

The study was conducted in 3 environments, La Molina-PERU to 240 masl. during autumn-winter and spring, and in Huancayo-PERU 3180 masl., during summer. The experimental material consisted of 24 families half brother in the form of tubers derived from TPS, obtained crossing between 8 female and 3 male parents. Design used was randomized complete block with three repetitions. The experimental unit was 30 plants in two rows at a distance of 30cm between plants and 90 cm between rows. Variables evaluated were Yield, Tubers number, Dry matter and content and reducing sugars. The analysis was conducted line x tester. The control variety was Desiree.
