Summary

A comparison among various forms of half-diallel analysis was made. The different half-diallel techniques used were: Griffing's model I, method 2 and 4, Morley-Jones' model; Walters and Morton's model, and Gardner and Eberhart's model. All these methods of diallel analysis were found to be interrelated. However, as the Gardner and Eberhart's model partitioned heterosis into different components as well as gave information about combining ability, this method had certainly some advantages over the others. The results further indicated the possibility of dominance variance being confounded with the additive variance of general combining ability.
