Abstract:

Horsegram (Macrotyloma uniflorum (L) Verdcout) is a popular pulse among the tribal’s of Bastar region, locally known as Hirwa or Harwa. An experiment was accompanied with 56 horsegram genotypes and 1 check Indira kulthi-1 at SGCARS Jagdalpur (C.G.), to assess genetic variability for 10 quantitative characters. The Analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters under study. High phenotypic variance coupled with high genotypic variance was estimated for trait pods per plant. Higher PCV coupled with high GCV was observed for seed yield per plant, indicating a wide range of variation which provides a chance for yield improvement. Highest heritability was observed for pods per plant whereas high heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percent of mean was observed for seed yield indicating additive gene action and the abundant scope for improvement in these traits through simple selection.
