Abstract
Eight S3 baby corn lines of KH101 were evaluated following line (8) × tester (3) method by determining general combining ability (GCA) and specific combining ability (SCA). Highly significant genotypic differences were observed indicated wide range of variability present among the genotypes. Variance due to SCA was larger than GCA variance for all the characters indicating the preponderance of non-additive gene action in the expression of various traits. Among the parents none were found as good general combiners for baby corn yield. None of 24 cross combinations showed significant SCA effects for yield per plant. Considering cob length, cob diameter, cob per plant, total fodder weight and yield per plant the crosses KH-101/S3-44×VS/S3-24 and KH-101/S3-44×VS/S3-25 were selected as promising baby corn hybrids.
