Abstract:

A study was undertaken to determine the extent of genetic variability for seed yield and ten other quantitative characters in 44 genotypes of moth bean. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among genotypes for all the characters. High genotypic coefficient and phenotypic coefficient of variation was recorded for seed yield per plant followed by length of main axis, number of pods per plant, number of cluster per plant, days to 50% flowering, number of pods per cluster and number of seeds per pod. High heritability was recorded for days to 50% flowering, length of main axis, days to maturity, number of pods per plant, seed yield per plant, number of primary branches, number of cluster per plant, 100 seed weight, number of pods per cluster and number of seeds per pod. High heritability (broad) coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed for length of main axis, number of pods per plant, days to 50 per cent flowering, days to maturity, number of cluster per plant and seed yield per plant. Thus, these traits are predominantly under the control of additive gene action and hence characters can be improved by selection.
