Article

Summary

Microsperma andmacrosperma genotypes were classified into different clusters representing two gene constellations, which possessed differential and complementary expression in respect of specific agronomic traits. Introgression of useful genes ofmacrosperma intomicrosperma and vice-versa may prove to be useful.
