Genetic variability studies and scope of improvement in Cape gooseberry genotypes in Chhattisgarh

Author(s):

Ratna Suryvanshi, Dr. GD Sahu

Abstract:
12 genotypes of cape gooseberry were evaluated for 8 qualatative and quantative character to study the genetic variability and association of the traints. The analysis of variance revealed considerable genetic variability in the evaluated genotypes. The GCV and PCV estimates were high for fruit yield/plant, shelf life of fruits (days) indicating better scope for improvement through simple selection. These characters also depicted high estimates for heritability and genetic gain indicating additive type of gene action. Fruit yield/plant showed positive and significant association with number of fruits/plant and fruit weight. Among the genotypes tested for performance studies, IGCG (Sel.-3) and IGCG (Sel-9) recorded the highest fruit yield potential under Chhattisgarh.
