Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted during November 2014 to March 2015 at Main Experimental Station of Vegetable Science, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture &Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad (U.P.). The field experiment was laid out in Augmented Block Design with 120genotypes along with two checks in ten blocks. The characters studied were Days to 50% flowering, Plant height (cm), number of branches per plant, number of fruiting node per plant, number of umbels per plant, number of umbellate per umbel, number of fruits per umbellate, number of fruits per umbel, umbel diameter (cm),1000 seed weight(g), seed yield per plant (g).Data were analyzed statistically for their mean, range, coefficient of variation, heritability, genetic advance, and genetic advance as percent of mean. The variation due to the blocks were highly significant for all the characters except days to 50% flowering and variance due to checks was non-significant for fruits per umbel while, highly significant for all characters. The genotypes NDCor-39 followed by NDCor-4, NDCor-92, NDCor-64 and NDCor-31 produced highest seed yield. The most desirable genotypes for characters other than seed yield were NDCor-5 and NDCor-7 for days to 50% flowering, NDCor-80, NDCor-81 for plant height, NDCor-10, NDCor-9 for branches per plant, NDCor-25, NDCor-19 for fruiting nodes per plant, NDCor-40, NDCor-70 for umbels per plant, NDCor-20, NDCor-17 umbellates per umbel, NDCor-21, NDCor-16 for fruits per umbellate, NDCor-92, NDCor-75 for fruits per umbel, NDCor-69, NDCor-58, for umbel diameter and NDCor-34, NDCor-108 for test weight. The high magnitude coefficients of variation at genotypic level as well as phenotypic level in case of umbel diameter. Therefore, crosses between members of clusters separated by high inter cluster distance are likely to produces desirable segregates.
