Abstract:

The genetic parameters of variability were studied for ten yield traits in 66 genotypes of tomato. Highly significant genotypic differences were reported for all the traits. The maximum coefficient of range was reported for average fruit weight followed by fruit yield (Kg)/plant, number of seeds/fruit and total number of fruits/plant. The maximum estimate of phenotypic and genotypic variance was recorded for number of seeds/fruit followed by plant height, average fruit weight and total number of fruits/plant. The trait fruit yield (Kg)/plant recorded the maximum heritability followed by number of fruits/cluster. Important yield traits namely average fruit weight, number of fruits/plant, number of seeds/fruit and fruit yield (Kg)/plant revealed high heritability coupled with high Genetic Advance as percentage of mean. Simple selection or pure line selection following hybridization may be effective for improvement in yield traits.
