Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to get information on genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance in the twenty one genotypes including six parents and fifteen F1 obtained through half diallel mating design in pea during 2016-17at the Research Farm, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, School of Agriculture, Lovely Professional University, Phagwara (Punjab). Quantitative analysis were carried out for all the characters which are directly or indirectly associated with the yield and yield contributing traits. Analysis of variance showed the significant variability for all the studied characters for parents and in F1 significant variability observed in all the traits accept primary branches per plant and seeds per pod. High heritability was observed for all the characters accept primary branches per plant (37.68) which was less. Highest value of GCV and PCV were observed for pod density (10.76 and 11.80) which indicates the presence of high genetic variation. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance for the character days to maturity yield per plant and plant height which indicate the presence of additive gene action and used for future population improvement. The genotypes with specific characters can be utilized for hybridization programme.


Keywords: Pea, Diallel mating, Variability, GCV, PCV, Heritability.
