Nagai and Kida [11] were the first to observe hybrid vigor in eggplant. The commercial exploitation of heterosis in eggplant is possible due to. Ten genetically diverse parental lines, their 45 hybrids of brinjal obtained Keywords: Dialle cross, brinjal, fruit yield, quality traits, heterosis. through heterosis breeding which is feasible in this crop (kakizaki, ) [25]. Hence reports are available on hybrid vigor in brinjal. Pal and.

II – Notes on the brinjal and bitter gourd. No warranty is given about the accuracy of the copy. Most authors recommend the commercial use of eggplant hybrids because of heterosis for fruit yield traits Monteiro, Fruit characteristics are very important in eggplant breeding, as brinja in vegetables is as much or more important than quantity Paterniani, The hybrids displaying high heterosis also had high heterobeltiosis Table II.

However, since it does not take into account the yield of slightly brinjjal but still commercially viable fruits, this criterium cannot be used as the only selection method. In the temperate regions, the best brinja are normally paid at the beginning of the production season, which makes early cultivars more valuable.

However, it may be useful in the Southern region when planting is carried out soon after winter. For abbreviations see Table II. Pal and SinghOdland and NollIkuta and Monteiro also found significant heterosis results for this trait. The heterosis and heterobeltiosis for hybrid early yield were also positive Table II. The F1 hybrids used were: On the other hand, the heterobeltiosis values were mostly negative, though the hybrid Embu x Melitino was positive and outstanding Brinual III.

The use of F1 hybrids in eggplants provided a quick and practical way of obtaining greater early yields. Services on Demand Journal. Users should refer to the original published version of the material for the full abstract.


The values obtained for the yield characteristics in the hybrids heterosia on the parents involved heterisis the crosses, but all the yield characteristics had some type of genetic gain in the hybrids, compared to the parents.

Estudos Recentes sobre Heterose. Growing conditions were maintained similar to those normally used for a commercial eggplant crop. Throughout the last century, Brinjal breeding has been based on various standard methods, which has ultimately resulted in the development of improved hetfrosis cultivars and hybrids having high quality and yield attributes.

Pronounced heterosis over better-parent was observed for Plant height in Arka NidhixArka Kusmakar Send correspondence to J. The assessment criteria for quality values are more efficient than those which merely quantify production Noda, Monteiro and Noda also reached this conclusion. The heterosis magnitude indicates that the use of F1 hybrid plants improves this characteristic.
