The present investigation was carried out to estimate GCA of eight parents and SCA of 28 crosses for ten quantitative traits in 8×8 half diallel mating design excluding reciprocals in brinjal. Experimental results revealed that among the parents, BBSR 202, BB 45C and BB 26 were found best on the basis of GCA effects while the crosses BBSR 202 × BB 13, BB 26 × BBSR 195-1 and BB 45C × BB 13 were found best on the basis of SCA effects for yield and contributing traits hence can be further exploited for commercial cultivation after multi-location testing. Further, the gene action studies revealed that the magnitude ofσ2 s were higher than σ2 s for all the traits indicating pre-ponderant non additive gene action. Thus hybrid vigour could better be exploited for these traits

Keywords: Brinjal, GCA, SCA, Yield, Gene action.
