Abstract:
This trial conducted on 27elite lines were used for the studies of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance as % of mean with 12 yield and attributing traits. The experiment was operated at Agriculture Farm, Nana Ji Deshmukh New Agriculture Campus, Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Satna (M.P.). The field lay out was done in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Highly significant differences found for all 11 traits except yield/plot. No. of seeds per capsule followed by internode length and seed yield (kg/ha) observed moderate level of GCV and PCV values indicating relatively moderate contribution of these characters towards genetic variability. Heritability in broad sense were high (80%) for three (internode length followed by oil content and no. of seeds per capsule) characters. The genetic advance % of mean were high in internode length followed by no. of seeds/capsules and seed yield/ha. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent over mean was also observed for characters such as internode length followed by no. seeds per capsule. Based on the study, heritability was mostly due to additive gene action. Selection for highly hertitable and high genetic advance as per cent of mean traits may be effective for the improvement of sesame.
