Heterosis

Term Definition
Heterosis
The improved or increased productivity of hybrid offspring compared to the parents, also known as hybrid vigor. Some traits exhibit more hybrid vigor than others; for instance, fertility is a trait with a large improvement in crossbred offspring over the parents while carcass traits typically have less heterosis. The improvement above the average of the parents is due to non-additive traits.
