Volume 11, Issue 2 , April 2024, , Pages 163-174

  To evaluate the gene effect, heritability and correlations of ajowan (Carum capticum L.) morphological traits ten parents were chosen from a genetically broad-based population and polycrossed to produce half-sib families. The evaluated traits were number of days to flowering, plant height, number of ...  Read More
