GENERAL AND SPECIFIC COMBINING ABILITY OF RABBIT FOR DIFFERENT PRODUCTIVE TRAITS
of carcass traits. It reveals presence of considerable additive and non-additive genetic variation.
GCA of SC was best followed by GCA of NZW and GCA of LC. This indicates that SC would do
better when crossed with other genetic groups. However a critical examination of SCA effects in
regard of carcass traits was found indicative of LC x NZW to accrue some additional advantages
by way of non-additive gene effects. It appears that both SC and NZW could be used effectively
to cross with indigenous breed of Meghalaya rabbit for the improvement of germplasam
