Abstract:
The genetic materials consisted of thirty one Urdbean genotypes. A Randomizes block design (RBD) with three replications was used. Experiment was conducted at CRF Dept of Plant Breeding and Genetics at Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences Naini, Prayagraj Uttar Pradesh in Zaid season 2019. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the traits except days of 50% pod setting. The maximum yield obtained was SU-URD 72, followed by SU-URD 82, SU-URD 83, U-5, and UH-85-5. High estimate of heritability were exhibited for seed yield per plant, seed index, days of maturity, plant height, harvest index, biological yield, pod length and number of primary branches per plant the character. Therefore, it is concluded that the characters which showed high heritability coupled with genetic advance should be considered for direct selection. Here, seed yield per plant and harvest index the character under study showed high heritability and genetic advance. Thus, one should select these characters for direct selection.
