Abstract:

Twenty one F1 crosses generated by crossing seven diverse mungbean genotypes viz., ML-267, LGG-528, MGG-390, WGG-42, AKM-9904, LM-95 and EC-362096 in a 7 ´ 7 diallel fashion without reciprocals were evaluated for fourteen quantitative characters Heterosis studies conducted on relative heterosis, heterobeltiosis and standard heterosis revealed that the cross combinations viz., LM 95 × EC 362096, MGG 390 × LM 95 and ML 267 × LGG 528 were adjudged as the best for majority of the yield, water use efficiency and heat stress tolerant traits. Hence, these crosses could be suggested for exploiting in future breeding programmes for obtaining transgressive segregants with high yield coupled with high WUE and heat tolerance.
