Abstract:

Significant variations were noted in 15 Brassica juncea L. genotypes in respect of morphological characters. The plant height, number of primary branches and number of secondary branches varied from 114.33cm to 198.00cm, 3.67 to 8.00 and 11.00 to 16.00, respectively. The number of siliqua per plant and number of seeds per siliqua ranged from 501.00 to 692.67 and 14.67 to 18.00 were noted among the genotypes, respectively. Maximum number of siliqua per plant and number of seeds per siliqua were recorded in Pusa Bold and RB-50, respectively. Number of siliqua in main raceme ranged from 36.00 to 57.33. SKJM-5 showed maximum number of siliqua in main raceme (57.33) and minimum was recorded in PM 21 (36.00). 1000 seed test weight for the various Brassica juncea L. genotypes ranged from 3.67gm to 5.08 gm. Maximum and minimum 1000 seed test weight was recorded in Pusa Karishma and PusaMahak, respectively. In cluster analysis, genotypes were mainly divided at the first node into 2 clusters with 10 (Cluster I) and 5 (Cluster II) genotypes in different groups. Cluster with 10 genotypes was again divided into 2 groups with 5 genotypes in each group. Cluster with 5 genotypes was again divided into 2 groups with 3 and 2 genotypes, respectively. Hence hybridization involving the inter cluster representatives of cluster would be more useful in chilly breeding programme.
