Abstract:

In F3 population except seeds per siliqua and 100 seed weight the 15 crosses differed significantly for all the other nine characters, however in F4 population the 15 crosses differed significantly for all the characters. Pusa Bahar × Rajasthan local selection -1 (13.62) was the highest performer in F3 generation and in F4 Rajasthan local selection1 × Pusa Barani (12.53) was the highest yielder. High h2 and GA were found for height upto first fruiting branch and seed yield per plant in both F3 and F4 and GA were found for height upto first fruiting branch and seed yield per plant in both F3 and F4 generations. At genotypic level seed yield per plant was positively associated with the plant height, days to physiological maturity, secondary branches per plant and 100 seed weight in F3 generation and primary branches per plant in F4 generation. At phenotypic level, seed yield per plant was positively associated with plant height, days to physiological maturity and secondary branches per plant and positive association and high direct effect on seed yield per plant was exhibited by plant height and secondary branches per plant in F3 generation and in F4 generation primary branches per plant was positively associated with seed yield per plant although it had negative direct effect on seed yield, due to its better performance through days to physiological maturity, secondary branches per plant and total chlorophyll content and indirect selection for seed yield improvement in F4 generation is possible for the present set of mustard crosses.
