Abstract:
Pea (Pisum sativum L.) 2n = 2x = 14, belongs to the family Fabaceae. It originated in central Asia, the Near East, Abyssinia and Mediterranean. In India huge range of variability is available in the land races or cultivars, in terms of qualitative as well as quantitative characters of pea. Analysis of Variance in the present investigation indicated that the genotypes evaluated differed significantly among all the treatment for all the twelve traits. The genotypes NDVP-10, NDVP-250, NDVP-8, VRPMR-9 and CHPMR-2 produced highest green pod yield per plant (g). These genotypes also exhibited average mean performance for pods per plant, pod length, number of seeds per pod and shelling percentage. Phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) was higher than the genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) for all characters. Both PCV and GCV were high for branches per plant followed by pods per plant and days to 50% flowering. While Selling percentage exhibited low value of genotypic coefficient of variation (GCB) and phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) and likely to show less response under selection.
