Abstract:

A set of 10 x 10 diallel crosses excluding reciprocals of Indian mustard along with their parents were evaluated in randomized block design with three replications in two set of environments i.e. normal (E1) and moisture stress (E2) in RBD design with three replications during Rabi 2015-16. Observation were recorded on various quantitative characters viz., Observations were recorded on days to flowering, days to maturity, plant height (cm), primary branches per plant, length of main raceme (cm), number of siliqua on main raceme, number of seeds per siliqua, 1000-seed weight (g), seed yield per plant (g) and oil content (%). Heterosis and heterobeltiosis of higher magnitude was expressed for seed yield per plant, number of siliqua on main raceme and number of seeds per siliqua. The crosses Vardan x RH-30 and Bio-902 x NRCDR-2 were identified as the superior crosses under both the environments which can be utilized for high yield and moisture stress genotypes.
