Author(s): Nimit Kumar and Satish Paul
Abstract: Twenty five linseed genotypes were subjected to evaluation for various agro-morphological traits during rabi 2013-14 at Experimental Farm of the Department of Crop Improvement, CSK Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur, India. The analysis of variance revealed that highly significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters indicating sufficient variability existed in the present material selected for the study and indicating the scope for selection of suitable initial breeding material for crop improvement. KL-232, KL-233 & KL-234 were found to be early maturing and Nagarkot was high yielding variety so these variety could be used in further breeding programme for the development of new varieties.
