Abstract:
Fifty diverse genotypes of Indian bean were evaluated in a Randomized Block Design with three replications to the study of selection indices during late kharif 2016-17. Sixty-three selection indices were constructed using the discriminant function technique revealed that the efficiency of selection increased with the inclusion of more number of characters in the index. The selection index based on five characters viz., green pod yield per plant, number of pods per plant, 10-green pod weight, plant height and reproductive phase duration exhibited maximum relative efficiency. Selection of these characters increase pod yield in Indian bean. The expected genetic advance and relative efficiency assessed for different indices increased considerably when selection was based on two or more characters.
