The broad sense heritability, useful in the selection of promising parents in vegetatively propagated crops, is estimated as a function of variance components in the analysis of variance of multilocation varietal data. A bootstrap procedure for obtaining robust estimates of these components has been outlined in this paper. The estimates of broad sense heritability for different comninations of varieties and locations have been given along with their mean squared error.
