Abstract:

Yield is the main objective for every plant breeder and the better and stable performance of yield in all environmental conditions is necessary and it can be accessed based on the performance and genetic variability of the varieties. The present investigation was carried out with twenty-one lentil genotypes to study the genetic variability in acidic soils of Manipur for 11 characters during Rabi, 2018. The analysis of variance showed significant differences for all the characters under consideration. For all the characters the phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) was greater than the genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV). All the characters have shown high heritability but high heritability accompanied with high genetic advance was shown by number of seeds per plant, biological yield per plant, seed yield per plant and 100 seed weight indicating the substantial contribution of additive gene action. High heritability with moderate to low genetic advance was recorded for number of pods per plant, plant height, harvest index, number of branches per plant, days to 50% flowering and days to maturity which specify equal influence of additive and non-additive genetic action in the expression.
