abstract

  • This paper discusses the modifications needed to be made to the biometrical breeding method proposed for single crosses in a previous paper (Lawrence and Senadhira, 1998) when used with pedigrees founded on three-way and double crosses. It is suggested that, if the S-0 and S-2 generations of the latter replace the F-1 and F-3 generations of the pedigrees of single crosses, it is possible for breeders to evaluate three- and four-parent crosses in the same programme as single crosses.
