The present investigation was undertaken for combining ability studies on quantitative and qualitative traits at C.H.F., CAU, Pasighat, A.P. The 28 F1 hybrids were developed by crossing 8 diverse brinjal genotypes/varieties in half diallel fashion. The variances due to GCA and SCA were significant for most of the characters indicating the importance of both additive and non-additive gene action in the inheritance of these characters. The highest gca effect for fruit yield was found in CHFB-6 (0.52) and Swarna Pratibha (0.44).Earliest flowering and harvesting was found in CHFB-7 x Solanum gilo with a sca value of -5.59 and -5.81, respectively. Pant Rituraj x CHFB-6 and Pant Rituraj x CHFB-7 were showed the significant response in fruit yield per plant with other characters (Plant height, number of seeds per fruit, solasodine and anthocyanin content) for sca effects. Swarna Pratibha x Pusa Purple Long was found significant sca effects for fruit yield per plant including qualitative traits. These hybrids can be used for further breeding programme regarding fruit yield, quality traits and earliness. Therefore, the current study could be evidence for hybrid breeding approaches that strengthens in improving yield, earliness together with quality traits.
