Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to study general and specific combining ability in 21 genotypes including 6 parents. The parent JL-501 identified good general combiner for number of primary branches per plant, pod size, harvest index and shelling percentage indicating this parent can be used for further crop improvement programme and the parent Girnar-3 showed significant positive gca effects for number of secondary branches per plant whereas the parent ICGV 91114 also identified as a best combiner for seed weight per plant. The crosses Kadiri-3 x JL-501 proves to the best combination for pod yield and early maturity and Kadiri-6 x Kadiri-3 for number of kernel per plant, harvest index and most of the traits that can be used for further breeding programmes.
