Abstract:

The present study was conducted to assess variability paramters for ten quantitative characters including seed yield per plant in mung bean utilizing thirty progenies of F4 population derived from two crosses viz., Meha x GJM-1006 (17 progenies) and Meha x GJM-1008 (13 progenies). Randomized Block Design with three replications was used and each genotype was planted on a spacing of 60 cm x 15 cm. Observations were recorded from 10 randomly selected plants. F4 progenies of Meha x GJM-1006 had highest genotypic variance for days to maturity, pods per plant and seed yield per plant, while progenies of Meha x GJM-1008 depicted highest genotypic variance for days to 50% flowering, plant height, primary branches per plant, seeds per plant, clusters per plant, harvest index and 100 seed weight. Most of the traits showed moderate to high heritability as well as genetic advance as per cent mean. High heritability values of more than 65 per cent have been observed for plant height in the cross Meha x GJM-1006 and days to 50% flowering in Meha x GJM 1008. Higher genetic advance as per cent mean was observed for pods per plant and seed yield per plant, and low genetic advance as per cent mean for days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, primary branches per plant, seeds per pod and 100 seed weight. The present findings could be useful for establishing selection for improvement of high seed yield in the mung bean breeding program.
