Grains of F 2 generation from half diallel crosses between five varieties of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) (Intesar, Rabbea'a, Bbu-Greeb-3-A dnanyi and Al-Eaz) were used to estimate general combining ability for parental varieties, specific combining ability for their crosses. Inbreeding depression in F 2 generation and Broad sense heritability for the following traits : total flour content, bran content, extracted flour, wet and dry gluten content, Fermentation time. The results indicated

The non-additive gene effects were more important than the additive for determining these characters. Some of hybrids showed significant positive values and others showed significant negative values inbreeding depression in F 2 for the studied traits. Broad sense heritability values were high for the all characters.
