Abstract:

Information on the extent of genetic variability and heritability as well as correlation among agronomical important traits is a requirement to design a suitable plant breeding method. The present research was conducted at ANDUAT, Ayodhya, India during the 2018-19 main crop growing season. The experimental material consisted of 80 wheat genotypes tested in augmented block design with three checks. Eleven agronomic traits were included in the investigation. Highly significant differences were revealed among wheat genotypes for all traits studied, suggesting the possibility of improving wheat for these traits. Peduncle length and Biological yield per plant showed the highest phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variations and genetic advance, whereas, Spike length, days to maturity and tiller per plant had the lowest values. Peduncle length exhibited highest heritability value of 97.12% while tiller per plant showed minimum value of 17.04%. Hence, these traits could be considered as suitable selection criteria for the development of high yielding wheat varieties.
