Abstract:

Genetic parameters like variability, heritability and genetic advance were studied in a set of 60 genotypes of roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) during Kharif, 2013 and 2014 in North Coastal Zone of Andhra Pradesh at Agricultural Research Station, Ragolu, Srikakulam district for seed yield and its contributing traits and the study revealed significant differences for all the characters. High variability was observed for all the nine characters in both the years concurrently. Phenotypic as well as genotypic coefficients of variability were high for the important productivity characters like seed yield plant-1 and pods plant-1; whereas, medium for plant height and test weight; and low for days to 50% flowering in both the years. High heritability coupled with high expected genetic advance was observed for seed yield plant-1, pods plant-1 and plant height in both years indicating operation of additive gene action and the ample scope for improvement in these traits through simple selection.
