  • Genetic advance is the difference between the mean of the selected plants in the original population and the mean of the progeny raised from the selected plants in the next generation. It can be predicted by the following formula.

Genetic advance (GA) = s P * H * K

K = selection intensity 2.06 when 5% of the population is selected

P = phenotypic standard deviation of the character in the population

H = heritability in broadsense
