Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to study the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance among 137 finger millet genotypes for fifteen characters during Kharif 2018. Analysis of Variance showed significant differences for all the characters under study except for leaf width, number of panicle per plant and test weight indicating the presence of a substantial amount of genetic variability thus revealed that these genotypes have been developed from the different genetic background. On the basis of per se performance for different quantitative traits, genotype IE4734 was found to be the best genotype in Allahabad agro-climatic conditions. High estimates of GCV and PCV were observed for harvest index. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was recorded for leaf width followed by test weight and grain yield per plant indicating the predominance of additive gene effects and the possibilities of effective selection for the improvement of these characters.
