Abstract:

Twenty-eight F1 bell pepper hybrids along with eight parents and standard check (Bharat) were evaluated for variability, heritability and genetic gain in different yield and yield contributing traits. The data was recorded on five randomly selected plants for twelve quantitative characters. The treatment, i.e. mean sum of squares due to genotypes showed significant differences for twelve characters studied, indicating the presence of high genetic variability among the genotypes. The estimates of GCV were lower than the respective PCV, indicating the influence of environmental factors on the expression of the traits studied. Characters like number of fruits per plant, fruit shape index, number of lobes per fruit, pericarp thickness and fruit yield per plant showed high heritability coupled with moderate genetic advance as percent of mean, suggesting that selection for the improvement of these characters may be rewarding. This also indicates greater role of non-additive gene action in their inheritance suggesting heterosis breeding could be used to improve these traits.
