Abstract:

Present investigation was carried out at the Students Instructional Farm of Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur during Rabi-2017-18. Analysis of variance revealed significant variation exists among the stains for all characters studied except stem girth, leaf width, nodes per plant, leaves per plant and seedlings dry weight. Heritability estimates varied from 6.65 percent for leaves per plant to 98.33 percent for days to maturity. Seed vigour index showed high GCV. Moderately high variability for GCV coupled with high estimates of heritability were observed for seedlings dry weight, green fresh weight of total tillers and green leaves weight per plant. Green fresh weight of total tillers exhibited comparatively higher estimates of genotypic coefficient variance, heritability and genetic advance as percent of mean which is indicative of predominance of additive gene action in expression of this trait therefore, for this character selection appears to be effective. The genetic advancement as percent mean was found to be highest for green fresh weight of total tillers (61.00) and moderately observed for plant height. This study will provide opportunity to identify best genotypes to be used in breeding. Besides it helps in understanding the diversity available in the genotypes selected and helps in selection and improvement of desirable traits to be used or transferred during crossing programme.
