Abstract:

Twenty eight hybrids derived using diallel mating design, eight parents and standard check (GFS 5) were evaluated for general combining ability (gca) and specific combining ability (sca) effects. The mean square due to general and specific combining ability was found significant for all the characters under study. However the ratio of σ2gca/ σ2sca advocated that the preponderance of non-additive gene action is express in all the characters under study. The estimates of general combining ability suggested that parents DSF 127, DSF 136 and CSV 21F were good general combiners for green fodder yield per plant and its attributing characters. Out of 28 hybrids, DSF 127 x CSV 15, CSV 21 F x MP Chari, DSF 117 x DSF 123, CSV 15 x GFS 4, DSF 123 x GFS 4 and CSV 21 F x GFS 4 were most promising hybrids for green fodder yield per plant. These hybrids were also found superior for yield contributing characters.
