Abstract:

The experiment “studies on collection and evaluation of genetic variability available in Amaranthus under Chhattisgarh plain condition” was conducted at Horticulture Research cum Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) during Rabi 2014-15. Twenty five genotypes of Amaranthus were evaluated. High magnitude of phenotypic GCV and PCV was observed for seed yield plot-1, followed by test weight, petiole length, number of leaves plant-1, stem girth, leaf breadth, leaf length, number of branches plant-1 and leaf yield. The heritability estimates recorded to be high for the characters viz. dry matter per cent, fiber content, seed yield plot-1, stem girth, test weight, leaf yield plot-1, petiole length, leaf breadth and root length, leaf length, number of branches plant-1, plant height. Highest estimates of genetic advance as percentage of mean was obtained for characters namely seed yield plot-1 and test weight, petiole length, number of leaves plant-1, stem girth, leaf breadth.


Keywords: Amaranthus, genetic variability, GCV, PCV, heritability, genetic advance
