Genetic evaluation of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) genotypes for yield and yield contributing traits
Sudhir Kumar Mishra, Sapna Roy, Naveen Kumar and VM Prasad
A field experiment was conducted at research field, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Naini, Prayagraj for genetic evaluation of twelve genotypes of cucumber for yield and related traits. Analysis of variance indicates that twelve diverse genotype of cucumber including one commercial cultivar (Pusa Barkha) differed significantly for the seventeen traits. The higher magnitude of coefficient of variation at phenotypic as well as genotypic levels was recorded among the genotypes. High heritability in broad sense were observed for average fruit yield followed by number of fruits per vine, vine length, fruit length, nodal position to first male flower and nodal position to first female flower where as in case of high genetic advance was observed for fruit yield followed by primary branches/vine, number of fruits per vine. The characters mentioned above have high heritability coupled with high genetic advance showing additive gene effect and selection for these traits is reliable for developing high yielding cultivar of cucumber.
