Abstract:
An experiment was conducted on Genetic variability, heritability and genetic gain in the thirty genotypes in Pea during 2017-18 at the Departmental Research Field of Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad. The observations were recorded on various yield and yield contributing characters. The results from the present investigation revealed that Pea Genotype Jawahar Pea-54 recorded maximum pod yield per plant (90.47g) and maximum number of pods per plant (15.87). Swarna mukti recorded maximum plant height (97.51 cm) and highest number of branches per plant (3.13). Maximum protein content (34.50%), plant spread (37.43 cm) and pod length (10.53 cm) was recorded in genotype Arka Karthik. Azad pea-5 recorded highest average pod weight (8.49 g) and moisture content in pod (84.31%). Pusa pragati recorded best in days to first flowering (34.73). Rachna recorded maximum fibre content (13.52%). Analysis of variance showed significant difference for all the characters under study, indicates that there was ample scope for selection of promising genotypes.
