Abstract:

Urdbean is an important climate resilient pulse crop with excellent nutritional profile grown extensively in Indian subcontinent. The present investigation was conducted to study the genetic variability, association of the characters and diversity among 51 released varieties and advance breeding lines of urdbean considering yield and yield attributing traits. The experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2017 and 2018 in Randomized Block design maintaining two replications. Observation was recorded regarding nine yield and yield attributing traits for determining genetic variability, association of the characters and divergence among the tested genotypes. Significant variation was observed in terms of all the quantitative characters. Selection for the characters viz. plant height, branches plant-1, no. of pod plant-1, no. of seed pod-1 and 100 seed weight would be effective for improvement of seed yield in these populations. Cluster analysis divided the population into ten clusters and indicated a considerable amount of divergence within and between the clusters with detection of diverse parents for future breeding programme. Presence of significant genetic variability and diversity among the tested genotypes of urdbean would be conducive for obtaining superior progenies in future breeding programme.
