Combining ability effects were estimated for different characters in a line x tester crossing programme comprising 36 hybrids produced by crossing 12 lines and 3 testers. Parents and hybrids differed significantly for gca and sca effects, respectively. Among the lines, Palam Triloki, Vivek Matar-10, Palam Priya, Azad Pea-3, Arka Karthik and Arka Ajit and among the testers P-89 and VL-Ageti Matar-7 were found to be the best general combiners. Six cross-combiners viz., Palam Priya x VL-Ageti Matar-7, Palam Priya x Azad Pea-1, Arka Ajit x P-89, Arka Ajit x VL-Ageti Matar-7, Arka Ajit x Azad Pea-1 and Azad Pea-3 x P-89 were found to be the best specific crosses for yield per plant and other related traits. Result showed that non additive gene action is an integral component of the genetic architecture of different traits in the material used in pea.
