Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Diallel Analysis in Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.)” was conducted during kharif, 2013.Seven diverse cowpea parents were selected and crossed in half diallel fashion in order to determine heterosis to identify promising hybrids for eleven traits including yield and its components. The maximum beneficial heterosis over mid parent was found for seed yield per plant (103.59 %), the highest significant heterosis over better parents was recorded for seed yield per plant (58.57 %). Considering the per se performance and magnitude of heterosis best performing hybrid GC-3 x HC-08-02 produced 15.60 g seed yield per plant, exhibited significantly maximum beneficial heterosis over mid parent (103.59 %) for the trait seed yield per plant. It is evident from present investigation that the hybrid combinations viz., GC-3 x HC-08-02, GC-06-01 x JOB-129, HC-08-02 x PGCP-1 and GC-3 x CP-105 exhibited the high per se performance, for heterobeltiosis for seed yield per plant.


Keywords: Cowpea, Heterosis and Yield component.
