Abstract:

Ten diverse Indian mustard (Brassica juncea L. Czern and Coss) genotypes suitable for early, timely and late sown condition were crossed in diallel mating design excluding reciprocals with an objective to identify the heterotic crosses. All three type of heterosis (relative heterosis, heterobeltiosis and economic heterosis) were estimated for seed yield and contributing traits. The results indicated presence of significantly high heterosis in desirable direction for all the characters except plant height and glucosinolate content. RRN-778×Maya, RRN-778×Maya and RB-57×Maya for early maturity, Maya×RMM-09-4, RB-57×PM-25 and PRL-2012-13xDRMR-675-39 for seed yield, PRL-2012-13×RRN-778, PRL-2012-13×RRN-778 and DRMR-675-39×Maya for oil content were most promising heterotic crosses for mid parent heterosis, better parent heterosis and economic heterosis respectively whereas, for plant height Divya-55×Maya was found most promising cross for mid parent heterosis.
