Abstract:

The present experiment was carried out “Evaluation of germplasm genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance in fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)”during Rabi season of the year 2014-2015 at Main Experiment Station of Department of Vegetable Science (Vegetable Research Farm) at Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad (Ayodhya) Uttar Pradesh, India. The characters studied and observations on various characters maximum recorded revealed that the characters studied were days to 50% flowering (89.42), days to maturity (145.21), plant height (80.65 cm), branches per plant (5.14), pods per plant (45.55), length of pods (16.60 cm), seeds per pod (19.66), 1000 seed weight (10.78 g), seed yield per plant (5.96 g) and seed yield (19.19 q/ha).The study revealed genetic variation for all studied traits in fenugreek. Analyses of variance for the design of experiment of fenugreek showed that block were highly significant for all the characters. The PCV was higher in magnitude than GCV. The maximum phenotypic and genotypic variances were observed for number of branches per plant (19.56%, 19.49%) followed by seed yield q/ha (17.20%, 17.16%) respectively. Heritability estimates were high for seed yield (99.57%) followed by branches per plant (99.30%) and Very high genetic advance in per cent of mean showed branches per plant (51.26%) followed by seed yield (45.19%).
