Shiva Mohan, RK Yadav, Amit Tomar and Mahak Singh
Analysis of variance revealed that the genotypes were genetically-differ to each for all the characters. Combining ability analysis revealed that good general combiners were Varuna, RK-9109, Pusa Jagannath and Kanti for higher oil content and parents, RH-819, Pusa Bahar, Rohini and Kanti for high seed yield per plant. Out of 21 Crosses three Crosses namely were good specific combinations Pusa Jagannath x Pusa Bahar, Pusa Jagannath x Kanti and RH-819 x Kanti for seed yield per plant. as well as superior economic heterotic combinations Varuna x RK-9101, Varuna x Pusa Jagannath, Varuna x RH-819, Varuna x Rohini and RK-9101 x Pusa Jagannath for seed yield per plant.
