Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Bihar Agricultural College, Sabour, India to study the performance of twenty one pumpkin hybrids along with seven diverse parents. The analysis of variance revealed the presence of significant differences among the parents, hybrids and parents v/s hybrids which suggested high variability among almost all the fourteen traits studied. Kashi Harit, Sabour Local and BRPK3/16 were most desirable parents for yield and its attributing traits and they could be utilized in future breeding programmes. The hybrids Kashi Harit x Sabour Local and BRPK2/16 x BRPK5/16 were identified as ideal cross combinations and can be assessed for yield stability over various locations and in different seasons.
