DescriptionIt is shown how general combining ability values (GCA's) from cross-, open-, and self-pollinated progeny can be derived in a single analysis. Breeding values are employed to facilitate explaining genetic models of the expected family means and the derivation of the GCA's. A FORTRAN computer program also includes computation of specific combining ability values and several options.
