Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to estimate different genetic parameters in ricebean germplasm of NW Himalayas. Forty germplasm lines of rice bean were evaluated for yield and its components in Kharif, 2015 at the experimental farm of CSKHPKV, Palampur. High PCV and GCV was observed for seed yield/plant, plant height, pod length, pods/cluster and clusters/plant indicating the role of these characters for effective selection. The study also revealed that heritability in broad sense was high for days to flowering, plant height and pods/cluster indicating that the variation observed was mostly under genetic control and less influenced by environment. Overall high to moderate heritability with high genetic advance was observed for plant height and seed yield/plant indicating additive gene control of these traits. On the basis of mean performance the genotypes, RBHP-403, RBHP-43, RBHP-413, UURB-17, IC-419518, IC-395028 were found promising among all the germplasm lines. The genotype PRR-2007-2 was observed to be earliest and dwarfest genotype among all.
