Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to estimate in three intervarietal crosses namely, ‘Palam Sumool × Punjab-89’, ‘Palam Sumool × Azad P-1’ and ‘Palam Sumool × Palam Priya’ comprising of twelve generations for estimation of heterosis and residual heterosis for pod yield and component horticulture traits in garden pea. These twelve generations were evaluated in randomized complete block design with three replications during winter 2014-15 at Palampur for various yield and yield contributing traits. Economic heterosis was observed for pods per plant and pod yield per plant in ‘Palam Sumool × Azad P-1’ and ‘Palam Sumool × Palam Priya’ along with appreciable economic residual heterosis except pods per plant in ‘Palam Sumool × Azad P-1’. Besides, ‘Palam Sumool × Punjab-89’ and ‘Palam Sumool × Azad P-1’ also showed economic heterosis for powdery mildew disease severity and pod length along with residual heterosis, respectively. In addition, ‘Palam Sumool × Punjab-89’ revealed appreciable residual heterosis over standard check (‘Punjab-89’) pods per plant, pod yield per plant, protein content and total sugars.
