  • a μj is mean of the model for backcross j (tons/hectare).

  • b Embedded Image and Embedded Image are residual and phenotypic variances in (tons/hectare)2 for backcross j, respectively.

  • c Embedded Image is variance in (tons/hectare)2 explained by the regression coefficients of the genetic effects in the model and decomposed in parts due to α, β, γ, and δ.

  • d Embedded Image is coefficient of determination.
