Thirty two (32) genotypes of turmeric from all the north eastern state of India along with Duggirala Red as check variety were evaluated to study the genetic parameters in respect of yield and yield attributing characters. Fifty three (53) traits were analyzed for phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV), genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV), heritability (h2) and expected genetic advance at 5 per cent selection intensity. The study revealed the presence of significant genetic variability, moderate to high heritability along with good genetic advance as percent of mean. The genotypes giving higher values of these characters indicated that the individual plant selection based on these characters may be given more emphasis and hence better selection process for further crop improvement programme. Thus, the result of the present study demonstrated that there exists variability among different turmeric genotypes of north eastern region of India indicating high potential for effective crop improvement and/or for further manipulation of the genetic resources through breeding as the genotypes in this region are good sources of genes for many desirable traits.

Keywords: PCV, GCV, Heritability, Genetic advance
