Present investigation in which forty four genotypes of forage oat were evaluated at the research field of AICRP on Forage Crops and Utilization, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri during Rabi 2018-19 in a RBD designs with three replications. The observations were recorded on yield and yield contributing traits viz., days to 50 % flowering, plant height (cm), number  of leaves /tiller, number of internodes / tiller, leaf length (cm), leaf breadth (cm), stem girth (cm), L/S ratio, dry matter content , crude protein content  and  green forage yield (kg/net plot). The analysis of variance revealed the significant difference among the genotypes for all the eleven characters. A wide range of variability was observed for plant height, days to 50 % flowering, leaf length, Leaf width and dry matter. The traits leaf: stem ratio, leaf width, green forage yield, stem girth, plant height, leaf length, number of leaves/tiller and number of internodes/tiller showed high heritability estimates accompanied with high genetic advance percent of mean which is due to additive gene action and direct selection for such traits is rewarding in crop improvement.

Keywords: Protein, Green forage, Yield, Variability and heritability
