Abstract:

In the present investigation, three lines were crossed with six testers in L × T mating design to estimate the combining ability for yield and component traits in groundnut. Non-additive genetic variance played a preponderant role in the inheritance of majority of characters studied viz., primary branches, secondary branches, matured pods per plant, immature pods, kernel yield per plant, 100 kernel weight, shelling per cent, sound mature kernels, chlorophyll content, haulm yield per plant and oil content. Additive genetic variance was more for the plant height and pod yield. The line Dh-86 and tester AGL-635 were found to be good combiners and are considered as superior parents in the present study as they recorded high per se performance with positively significant gca effect. Among the 18 F1 s, crosses viz., Dh-86 × AGL-108, TMV-2 × AGL-168 and Dh-86 × AGL-635 were considered to be superior as they recorded positively significant sca effect for pod yield per plant.
