Lu Zuomei (Agronomy Department, Nanjing Agricultural University, Nanjing 210095)
Good specific combining ability (SCA) combinations should be obtained from good general combining ability(GCA) parents. This is a practice of hybrid maize breeding all over the world and will be the inevitable way for hybrid ricebreeding development in our country. The performance, heterosis and combining ability components in hybrid rice are analyzed. Some suggestions of strengthening the combining ability selection in hybrid rice are also proposed.
