Abstract:

Field study has been conducted at Horticultural College and Research Institute, Periyakulam for evaluating the genetic variability and association among characters during the year 2011-12. The phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) was higher than genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) for all the eight characters studied. The higher PCV and GCV estimates were found for number of flowers per branch let followed by fruit weight. High heritability with high genetic advance was observed for flowers per branch let, length of the fruit and fruit weight. The correlation studies revealed that plant height exhibited positive correlation with trunk girth, number of flowers/branch let, length of fruit, fruit girth, fruit weight, number of seeds/fruit. There exists a positive relationship of length of fruit with fruit girth, fruit weight, number of seeds/fruit and number of pods/tree.


Keywords: Moringa, Correlation, Heritability, Genetic advance.
