Additive gene action is effectively responsive to selection whereas, non-additive gene action (dominance and epistatic) enhances the hybrid vigor in cross combination of inbred lines.
Dominance and additive gene actions are effectively used for the improvement of hybrids (Kumar et al.

These results were also confirmed by graphical analysis where over dominance for flag leaf area and partial dominance with additive gene action was indicated for plant height, tillers per plant, 1000-grain weight and grain yield per plant.
Additive gene action was more important than non-additive gene action for grain yield.

solani was quantitatively inherited, and that two to three genes with additive gene action were responsible for the resistance.
Although, additive gene action is there but presence of additive x dominant (j) epistasis made the gene action complex leading towards a delay in selection.
napus) have indicated that additive gene action is the main genetic factor in the control of seed oil content with dominance and epistasis being not significant (Grami and Stefansson, 1977: Engqvist and Becker, 1991).
With additive gene action, standard plant-breeding procedures, especially recurrent selection, would be useful to improve both groat protein and oil content (Campbell and Frey, 1972).
