Abstract:

A study was carried out on heterosis for fruit yield and yield related traits in ridge gourd. Twenty eight F1 hybrids were generated by half diallel (excluding reciprocals) mating design. These F1 hybrids along with eight parents were evaluated in randomized block design with three replication at Horticulture farm, College of Agriculture, Bikaner and KVK Research farm, Bhartiya Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Fatehpur-Shekhawati, Sikar. The maximum positive heterosis was observed in the crosses maximum standard heterosis (85.29 %) followed by cross Jaipuri Long x Arka Sujath (81.85 %) in E4 whereas maximum heterobeltiosis Jaipuri Long x Swarna Manjari depicted (63.82 %) in E4 followed by cross Swarna Uphar x Jaipuri Long (40.58 %) for total fruit yield per vine.


Keywords: Ridge gourd, Yield, Diallel, Heterosis, Hybrids.
