Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to estimate genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance of eight parent and 28 f1’s of table pea during 2018-19 and 2019-20 at HRC, SVPUA&T, Meerut (UP) 250110. The observations were recorded on various yield and yield contributing characters. Analysis of variance showed the significant variability for all the studied characters. High heritability was recorded for all characters except width of pod (55.84 %) which was medium heritability. High GCV and PCV were recorded in seed yield per plant and number of pods per plant which indicates the presence of high genetic variation. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance observed for the traits viz.plant height, seed yield per plant, number of pods per plant, length of first fruiting node, days to 50% flowering, number of first fruiting node, length of pod and number of seeds per pod which indicates presence of additive gene action and demands for population improvement by selection. The genotypes with specific characters can be utilized for hybridization programme.
