Abstract:

In order to best exploit the available genetic wealth in the crop, the information would have paramount important. Therefore, the present investigation was undertaken to study the best performing variety, nature and magnitude of genetic variability inherently present in the genotypes, and also to ascertain the degree and direction of relationship between yield and its component characters and the direct and indirect effects of various component characters on the yield of twelve genotypes of pea. High GCV and PCV were recorded for total chlorophyll content followed by green pod yield and number of leaves per plant. Heritability was high (>60 %) for all the characters except pod set per inflorescence, shelling percentage and protein content which exhibited medium heritability. The pod yield was significantly and positively correlated with pod weight, pod girth, pericarp thickness, seed weight per pod, number of pods per plant and weight of 100 seeds. The path coefficient analysis using the phenotypic correlation coefficient among the pair of characters showed that number of pods per plant had the highest positive direct effect on yield.  At last it could be concluded that PSM-3 and PSM-5 are best performing varieties for this region according to green pod yield.
