The objective of this study was to determine the effects of the general and specific combining abilities (GCA and SCA, respectively) of 15 characteristics and to evaluate the most promising crosses and the reciprocal effect between the hybrids of six parents of the Capsicum annuum species. Six parents, belonging to the Horticultural Germplasm Bank of Centro de Ciências Agrárias of Universidade Federal da Paraíba, were crossed in complete diallel manner. The 30 hybrids generated and the parents were then analyzed in a completely randomized design with three replicates.

Use of elephant grass for energy production in Campos dos Goytacazes-RJ, Brazil

R. F. Daher, Souza, L. B., Gravina, G. A., Machado, J. C., Ramos, H. C. C., Silva, V. Q. R., Menezes, B. R. S., Schneider, L. S. A., Oliveira, M. L. F., and Gottardo, R. D., Use of elephant grass for energy production in Campos dos Goytacazes-RJ, Brazil, vol. 13, pp. 10898-10908, 2014.

Elephant grass is a tropical forage plant widely distributed throughout Brazil. It was first exclusively used in the livestock sector as cattle feed. The grass is characterized by its high productivity and photosynthetic capacity and is considered as an alternative source of renewable energy. Here, we estimated the general combining ability of the parents and specific combining ability of the hybrids based on morpho-agronomic biomass-quality traits. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design with 3 replicates.
