Heterotic studies for yield and quality traits in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)

Author(s):

Pramod Kumar, Lila Bora and Suneel Kumar Maurya

Abstract:
Sum total of 30 hybrids generated through crossing of 10 lines and 3 testers along with their parents and one standard check were used to study the heterosis for 13 yield and quality traits into randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Significant differences among diverse genotypes were obtained for all the traits studied. Most of the crosses showed higher heterosis involving at least one parent with high GCA effects. The top six heterotic crosses over standard check Avinash –II were DVRT-3 x PNR-7, A. Vikas x PNR-7, DVRT-5 x H-86, DVRT-6 x PC, PSH x PC and S-7 x PC with significant standard heterosis ranging from 46.69 to 102.49 per cent.
