Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted at Horticulture College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Periyakulam during August, 2013 to April, 2014. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design with two replication. Thirty three germplasm seeds are collected from the NBPGR, Regional station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. The data were observed from five randomly selected competitive plants from each replication for twelve quantitative traits. Analysis of variance revealed the significance differences among the genotypes. The phenotypic coefficient of variation was higher than genotypic coefficient of variation for all characters indicating the influence of environment on these characters. High phenotypic and genotypic coefficient of variation was observed for all the characters except days to first flowering and number of seeds per pod. High heritability was observed for all character except number of secondary branches per plant, dry pod yield per plant and days to first flowering. High genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed for all character except days to first flowering and number of secondary branches per plant.
