Abstract:

A study was undertaken to estimate the heritability, genetic advance and coefficient of variation analysis of yield and yield contributing traits in 36 wheat cultivars grown in randomized block design with three replications at Research Farm, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, CCS University, Meerut, during rabi season 2011-12. The analysis of variance revealed that the treatments were highly significant for all the characters except flag leaf width. The higher magnitudes of phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) were recorded for grain yield per plant. The high heritability was estimated for the characters days to 50% flowering, plant height, flag leaf length, spike length and number of grains per spike. High value of heritability indicates that it may be due to higher contribution of genotypic components. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percent of means were recorded for plant height, spike length and grains per spike that indicated predominance of additive gene action in the inheritance of these traits.


Keywords: Heritability, Genetic advance and Bread wheat.
