High heritability observe for plant height, days of maturity, number of siliquae per plant. Higher genetic advance shows length of main raceme, plant height, number of siliquae per plant, days to maturity, harvest index, seed yield and oil content, number of seed size, number of secondary branch, days to flowering, number of seeds per siliqua, biological yield and 1000-seed weight. These characters should be considered in making selection of genotypes for crop improvement. Seed yield per plant have positively correlated with number of primary branches per plant, number of secondary branches per plant, days to maturity, plant height, length of main raceme, number of seeds per siliquae, biological yield, harvest index, 1000-seed weight and oil content.
