Abstract:

The variability is the soul of any breeding programme, so, in this research an attempt was made to assess the morphological variability using thirteen characters in coriander. The values of heritability in broad sense were observed very high for total oil content followed by days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, 1000 - seed weight, seed yield per plant, umbels per plant, seeds per plant, seeds per umbel and plant height. Genetic advance as percentage of mean ranged between 0.67 % for primary branches per plant, to 78.27% for umbels per plant. Genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed high for umbels per plant, seed yield per plant, seeds per plant, total oil content, 1000 - seed weight, days to 50% flowering and plant height. In the present findings phenotypic coefficient of variations were observed to be higher than the corresponding genotypic coefficient of variation for all the characters studied, also results indicated that high heritability coupled with high genetic advance and moderate to high GCV and PCV were recorded indicating the role of additive gene action in the inheritance of these traits, hence further improvement in these characters would be achieved by phenotypic selection.
