Abstract:

Thirty five germplasm of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) along with check were evaluated at University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. High genotypic coefficient of variability and phenotypic coefficient of variability coupled with high heritability coupled with genetic advance as per cent mean were observed for the characters plant height (30 and 60 DAS), number of branches per plant (60 and 90 DAS), number of leaves (30, 60 and 90 DAS), number of pods per plant and hundred seed weight. High heritability coupled with the high genetic advance as per cent mean were noted for plant height (30 and 60 DAS), number of branches (60 and 90 DAS), number of leaves (30, 60 and 90 DAS), leaf area, number of pods per plant and hundred seed weight. High heritability with moderate genetic advance as per cent of mean was recorded for plant height (90 DAS), days to 50 % flowering, days to maturity, pod length and pod width. The characters like number of branches (30 DAS), chlorophyll content and number of seeds per pod recorded moderate heritability coupled with low genetic advance over mean. The studies indicates that the selection may be worthwhile in fenugreek for characters plant height (30 and 60 DAS), number of branches per plant (60 and 90 DAS), number of leaves (30, 60 and 90 DAS), number of pods per plant and hundred seed weight for achieving higher yields.
