Abstract:

In the present investigation 168 germplasm lines and five checks of groundnut were evaluated during Kharif 2016 to study genetic parameter viz., variability, heritability and genetic advance for fourteen characters. The analysis of variance for all quantitative characters revealed that the presence of ample amount of genetic variation for all the characters among the entries. The traits; number of immature pods per plant, kernel yield per plant, number of primary branches per plant, number of mature pods per plant, pod yield per plant, number of pegs per plant and number of pods per plant were recorded higher estimates of GCV and PCV. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean were registered by number of immature pods per plant followed by days to 50% flowering, number of primary branches per plant, shelling percentage, number of pods per plant, number of mature pods per plant, plant height and 100 kernel weight. The above results indicating that these traits were mainly governed by additive gene action and scope for the improvement of these traits through selection.
