Abstract

In 3 oat crosses seed weight appeared to be inherited as a quantitative character. Each of the crosses showed transgressive segregation. In 6 crosses, the correlations between yield and seed weight were all positive, but only 4 were significant. In simulated selection experiments, the efficiency of selection for yield was compared when only yield or when yield plus seed weight were used as the selection criterion. In general, the addition of seed weight as a selection criterion decreased the gain in yield.
