Abstract:
Sixty three (63) yellow seeded linseed genotypes taken from AICRP on linseed, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) along with three checks (Surabhi, R-552, RLC-92) were evaluated for variability among yield and yield contributing traits in yellow seeded linseed at Raipur (C.G.). The highest genotypic coefficient of variation was recorded for number of capsules per plant (38.7) followed by number of seeds per plant (3), seed yield per plant (31.8), seed length (15.7) whereas, highest phenotypic coefficient of variation was observed for number of seeds per plant (55) followed by number of capsules per plant (39.7), seed yield per plant (35.7), seed length (18.2) indicating the existence of considerable amount of variability for those traits among the genotypes. Days to 50% flowering and number of capsules/plant showed high heritability of 94% followed by plant height (81%). The significant genetic variability in any breeding material is a prerequisite as it does not only provide a basis for selection but also provide some valuable information regarding selection of diverse parents for use in hybridization programme.
