Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out entitled “ Genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance for yield and quality attributes in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)” during kharif season of the year 2014- 2015 at Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (A Central University), Vidya- Vihar, Rae Bareli Road, Lucknow-226025 (U.P.) India. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The experimental materials consisting fifteen genotypes of tomato i.e. IIVR-Sel.-1, G-3, S. Naveen, DVRT-2, H-24, H-86, H-88, Pusa Sheetal, FLA 7171, Hisar Arun, Sel.-32, Flora Dode, Pusa Sadabhar, Kashi Vishesh and Kashi Amrit). The maximum phenotypic and genotypic variance, genetic advance was observed for average fruit weight (g). The highest of PCV and GCV, Heritability (broad sense), GA percent of mean was estimated for fruit yield per plant (kg).
