Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to estimate the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance analysis among 25 genotypes of turmeric for rhizomes yield and its contributing characters. These genotypes were planned in Randomized Block Design with three replications during June, 2017 to March, 2018 at Protected Cultivation Unit of the College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar, Rajasthan. The analysis of variance indicated presence of considerable variability for all the 21 characters. High genotypic coefficient of variance (GCV) and phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) were recorded for per cent fresh weight of secondary rhizomes per plant followed by dry weight of rhizomes per plant, number of tillers per plant and length of mother rhizomes per plant. Therefore, these characters can be improved through selection programme.
