To validate the results for the large sample size, PY m–2 was used in place of SYP in combination with six other traits that were common to both SYP and PY m–2. A majority (69–74%) of the restorers were found to be in the medium group. 7%, respectively. Differences between years and between SYP and PY m–2 were marginal for the distribution percentages. These results confirmed our earlier findings (Vijayakumar et al 1999), where 29 parents were used for the study. When SYP was used for the analysis, nearly 75% of the restorers that were found in the medium group in 1995 also appeared in the same group in 1996.

Results on (1) grouping of parents and their relationship with heterosis and (2) genetic enhancement of heterosis are described. In the first experiment, 116 restorers whose hybrid combinations have been evaluated in national tests were evaluated in the field for 2 y.
