Abstract:

The phenomenon of heterosis has provided the most important genetic tools in improving yield of crop plants. Identification of specific parental combination capable of producing the highest level of heterotic effects in F1 has immense value for commercial exploitation of heterosis. The experimental material comprised of 3 diverse pistillate lines, 13 inbred lines and their resultant 39 cross combinations and one standard check GCH 7 was evaluated in a randomized complete block design with three replications. Among 39 hybrids, 20 hybrids exhibited significant positive heterobeltiosis for seed yield, of these best three heterotic hybrids in order were SKP 84 x ANDCI 8, SP 1 x SI 5 and SP 1 x DCS 100on the other hand three hybrids viz., SP1 x SI 5, SKP 84 x ANDCI 8 and SKP 84 x SI 5 exhibited significant positive standard heterosis over GCH 7.
