Heritability (H) on a progeny mean basis is frequently estimated in recurrent selection experiments for the purpose of estimating the expected progress from family selection; however, appropriate measures of precision have been developed for only a few heritability estimators. The objective of this research was to develop a measure of precision for H for certain balanced linear models. Exact confidence intervals for H were derived and are not restricted to a specific experimental design. The confidence intervals were applied to sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] half-sib family data.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
