Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out with twenty five genotypes consisting of 6F<sub>1</sub>s, 6F<sub>2</sub>s, 6F<sub>3</sub>s, 5 parents and two check varieties which were evaluated during <em>Rabi</em> 2017-18 at the Experimental Farm of the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, BAU, Ranchi to examine the nature and magnitude of genotypic and phenotypic variability, heritability and genetic advance. The analysis of variance revealed highly significant difference among twenty five genotypes the studied characters. Highest PCV and GCV were expressed by number of capsules per plant and seed yield per plant. High heritability with high genetic advance as percentage of mean was recorded for technical height, plant height, number of capsules per plant, seed yield per plant, 1000-seed weight and oil content (%), indicating predominance of additive gene action for these characters.
