dc.description.abstractIndividual plant selection for yield in lentil is problematic at a commercial crop density primarily because of inter-plant entanglement by tendrils. Visual plant selection for yield was compared with random selection in the F5 at three plant densities (66, 133 and 200 seeds/m2) by an evaluation of F7 progeny yields over two seasons in two populations of lentil. Random plant sampling was as effective as visual plant selection in isolating high-yielding F7 lines. The plant density of the selection environment did not affect the response to selection. The correlations between the seed number of selected F5 plants and the mean yield of their F7 progenies were r=+−0.26 and −0.06 in two populations, indicating the lack of positive response to plant selection for seed number. The results show that 1) random sampling is the most economic of the methods tested of plant selection for yield and 2) the plant density of the environment for plant selection can be low enough to avoid inter-plant entanglement by tendrils, allowing a focus in plant selection on characters, other than yield, of importance to the breeding program and with a higher heritability than yield.en_US
