Eighteen germplasm lines with two check varieties of Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) assessed to work out the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance on different seed yield traits and divergence analysis of their various attributes on seed yield. The observations were recorded on eleven quantitative characters namely days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, plant height (cm), number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pods, 100-seed weight (g), biological yield per plant (g), protein content (%), harvest index (%) and seed yield per plant (g).The most promising lines showing highest seed yield with high mean performance for other yield contributing characters were identified as HB 11-38, HB 9-1 and NDFB 15-1. The non-hierarchical Euclidean cluster analysis grouped 18 genotypes in to five clusters. The highest number of genotypes appeared in cluster IV which contained 7 genotypes and cluster III was represented minimum number of genotypes. In this context maximum inter cluster distance was recorded between cluster II and cluster V. However, maximum intra-cluster distance was observed in cluster IV.

Keywords: Faba bean, genetic variability, genetic advance, heritability, divergence and seed yield
