Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the 28 F1 hybrids derived from 8×8 half diallel fashion along with eight parents in randomized block design with three replications during winter season at Vegetable experimental farm, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Central Agricultural University, Pasighat, Arunachal. The genetic components of variation were determined for eleven characters viz., plant height, number of branches per plant, days to first flowering, fruit length, fruit girth, fruit yield per plant, solasodine content, total phenol content and anthocyanin content. The genetic components , and  were significant for number of branches per plant, days to first flowering, days to first fruit harvest, fruit girth, number of seeds per fruit and anthocyanin content indicating the importance of both additive and dominant gene effects in regulating these traits. However, higher value of and compared to  for all traits except fruit length, significance value of h2 for fruit length, fruit yield and total phenol, average degree of dominance (/) ½ and ratio of KD/KR for yield and other traits including quality parameters showed the preponderance of dominance genes in the expression of and hence, suggested that hybrid breeding can be used efficiently to improve yield together with quality traits in brinjal.
