Abstract:

Sixteen genotypes of fennel were evaluated at Main Seed Spices Research Station, S. D. Agricultural University, Jagudan, Gujarat during rabi 2015-16, for estimates of variability, heritability and genetic advance in eight quantitative traits, viz., plant height, number of branches per plant, days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, number of umbels per plant, number of umbelletes per umbel, number of seeds per umbellete and seed yield per plant. The analysis of variance indicated that presence of considerable amount of diversity in the material. Phenotypic coefficients in variations were of higher magnitude than that of genotypic coefficient of variations for all the traits. The highest GCV and PCV were observed for seed yield per plant (25.14 and 26.97 %) and number of umbels per plant (15.85 and 17.72 %). High estimates of heritability was observed for days to maturity (96.89 %), days to 50% flowering (93.02%), seed yield per plant (86.90%), plant height (85.29 %) and umbels per plant (80.06 %) and it was recorded medium for number of branches per plant (46.79 %) and number of umbelletes per umbel (28.62%). High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percentage of mean for traits like seed yield per plant and number of umbels per plant which indicated that higher response for selection to high yields as these characters are governed by additive gene actions.
