Abstract:

The present study on “Studies of genetic parameters for yield and yield atrributing traits of kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.)” was carried out at Instructional cum Research Farm of S.G. College of Agriculture and Research Station Kumhrawand, Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh. Thirty three kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.) genotypes were evaluated to measure genetic parameters i.e. genetic variability, heritability, genetic advance as percent of mean for nine quantitative traits. The phenotypic coefficient of variance (PCV) slightly higher than genotypic coefficient of variance (GCV) for all traits under studied. Among the trait under studied, tiller per plant showed highest PCV and GCV followed by grain yield per plot (g) and fodder yield (g). Higher broad sense heritability was estimate for days to maturity followed by days to flowering, tillers per plant and panicle length. Results revealed high heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percent of mean was higher for tillers per plant followed by panicle length (cm), plant height (cm), fodder yield (g) and test weight (g), these traits were directly selected because they were under the control of additive gene action. High heritability accompanied with high genetic advance as percent of mean was under the control of additive gene action and therefore simple selection is advantage for these traits.
