Abstract

PETKOV, N., Y. VASILEVA, Y. NATCHEVA, Z. PETKOV, H., GREISS, O. GALANOVA, T. SAFONOVA and Y. LIJAHENKO, 2005. Complex evaluation of silkworm Bombyx mori L. ameiotic parthenoclones. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 11: 353-356

A contemporary statistical method for complex evaluation of five ameiotic parthenoclones from National silkworm (Bombyx mori L.) gene bank of populations was used.
Statistical method for complex assessment of ameiotic parthenoclones through Total evaluation indices (TSEi) allows identifying and using the best of them in Bombyx mori L. selection programs.
P11/22 introduced from Ukraine and Parthenoclone1 and E11, introduced from Egypt had approximately the highest merits and are the most perspective parthenoclones.
We foresee the indicated parthenoclones to be used for creation of new original F1 silkworm hybrids of individuals from ameiotic parthenoclones x individuals from sex-limited at larva stage lines" type.

Key words: silkworm, Bombyx mori L., parthenoclones, complex evaluation
