Abstract:

The Present investigation was carried out using 75 genotypes along with two standard checks viz; JA-20 (Jawahar Asgandh-20) and JA-134 (Jawahar Asgandh-134). The examination was spread out in Augmented RBD design during Kharif 2019 at the Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur. Sufficient variability was present in the genotypes under study for all the characters indicating sufficient genetic variability among the genotypes. Highest GCV was found for secondary branches (33.04), primary branches (26.36) and fresh plant weight (20.26) where as lowest GCV was observed in the character days to 75% maturity (0.45). Highest PCV was found for Secondary branches (34.44), primary branches (29.90), root diameter (21.03) and fresh plant weight (20.28) where as lowest PCV was observed in days to 75% maturity (1.38). The high estimates of heritability values noticed in characters like Fresh plant weight (99.85), plant height (99.35), and days to flowering (97.64). High heritability with high genetic advance was found in fresh plant weight per plant. High heritability together with high genetic advance was observed for fresh plant weight. The genetic advance was found high (>20%) in the character fresh plant weight (41.38%).
