Abstract:

Ten genotypes as lines and three genotypes as testers of mungbean were investigated for combining ability analysis through crosses developed into line x tester passion. The study revealed that the gene action involved in controlling traits viz., plant height, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod and grain yield per plant was non-additive; while the characters viz., number of branches per plant and 100-grain weight had additive gene action. Genotype KM 2264 was found good general combines for most of the yield attributing traits. Among testers KM 2195 was found good general combiner for all the characters. Crosses KM 2312  KM 2241, KM 2260  KM 2241 and KM 2318  KM 2241 exhibited highly significant positive SCA effects along with higher per se performance for yield contributing traits.
