Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to estimate the genetic parameters for twenty traits in 47 rice bean genotypes for fodder yield. The study revealed that phenotypic coefficient variation (PCV) was higher than genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) for all the traits. Higher GCV and PCV were recorded for dry matter yield per plant per day, dry matter yield per plant, green fodder yield per plant, green fodder yield per plant per day, dry root weight, crude protein yield per plant per day, crude protein yield per plant, root volume, fresh root weight, root nodules per plant, number of leaves per plant and leaf stem ratio. Whereas, root length, stem diameter, number of branches per plant, plant height reported moderate GCV and high PCV. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percentage of mean was observed for crude protein yield per plant, crude protein yield per plant per day, fresh root weight, dry root weight, number of leaves per plant, root nodules per plant, leaf stem ratio, root volume and plant height. Moderate heritability with high genetic advance was exerted by green fodder yield per plant, dry matter yield per plant per day, green fodder yield per plant per day, root length, number of branches per plant and stem diameter, indicating that heritability may be due to additive gene action and selection based on these characters may be effective.
