The genetic parameters like heritability and genetic correlations are must for any breeding and election programme.  The estimates of heritability indicate the extent to which reliance can be placed on genetic transmission as observed from phenotype.  While the genetic correlations help the breeder to develop index for selection by incorporating the genetically correlated traits along with the help of H2 estimates.
