Abstract:

In this research fifty F4 progenies of brinjal were subjected to study the extent of variability present in the experimental material. Analysis of variance indicated presence of large variability for different characters under study. Most of the growth, flowering, fruit and yield characters under study were found significantly varied. The magnitude of phenotypic variance was greater than genotypic variance in all the characters under the study. The magnitude of the genotypic variance was greater than environmental variance for most of the characters except days to last harvest, days to first harvest and harvesting span. High heritability values were obtained for most of the characters studied except days to last harvest, days to first harvest, harvesting span. The highest estimates of genetic advance were recorded in fruit weight. Similarly the high values of genetic advance accompanied by higher heritability were observed for the character fruit weight. Genotypes 86 and 88-7 for earliness, 60 for maximum length of fruit, 57 for maximum girth and maximum weight of fruit, 62, 64, 72 and 88-2 for maximum harvesting span, 62 for maximum number of fruits, 62 for maximum number of fruit per plant, and 71 and 61 for yield were found promising, hence can be utilized for improvement for these traits in brinjal.
