Abstract:

The experiment on sixty genotypes including four check varieties (G-50, G-41, G-282 and Punjab Garlic) of garlic (Allium sativum L.) was conducted to work out the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance effects of their various attributes on yield per plant. The maximum bulb yield per plant was observed in NDG-26 (29.97 g) followed by NDG-41 (29.30 g) and NDG-5 (28.22 g) against the general mean 23.40 g. While the minimum bulb yield per plant was recorded in NDG-31 (15.13 g). The high estimates of genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variation were recorded as 28.74 and 28.77 per cent, respectively for width of leaf. The high magnitude of genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variation were observed for width of leaf, length of clove, diameter of clove, indicating thereby, substantial scope for improvement in this character after hybridization and subsequent selection and the high estimate of heritability with high genetic advance in per cent of mean were observed for width of leaf, width of clove, neck thickness of bulb, diameter of clove. Heritability and genetic advance indicate that the additive nature of gene action and reliability of those characters for selection and emerged as ideal traits for improvement through selection.
