Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to derived information on genetic variability, heritability and genetic gain in the twenty six genotypes including check in garden pea during 2016-17 at the Field Experimentation Centre of the Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad. The observations were recorded on various yield and yield contributing characters. Analysis of variance showed the significant variability for all the studied characters expect number of primary branches per plant. High heritability was recorded for all characters except protein content (53.36) which was medium heritability. High values of GCV and PCV were observed for characters viz., pod yield per plant (20.84 and 22.12) pod yield per plot (20.84 and 22.12) and days to first flowering (21.14 and 21.26) and which indicates the presence of high genetic variation. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance observed for the traits viz., pod yield (g/plant), pod yield per plot (g/plot), plant height and days to first flowering which indicates presence of additive gene action and demands for population improvement by selection. The genotypes with specific characters can be utilized for hybridization programme.
