Abstract:
A set of 45 genotypes including 8 females, 4 males, their 32 resultant hybrids and one commercial check variety (GJOH-3) were sown during khrif 2016 at the Instructional Farm, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh to study the magnitude of heterosis using line x tester analysis for ten characters. Significant differences were observed among the parents and hybrids indicating considerable genetic variation among these genotypes. Significant standard heterosis and high per se performance with regards to fruit yield per plant were recorded by the crosses viz., JOL-11-12 x AOL-03-02, KS -404 x JOL--2K-19, Pusa Sawani x AOL-03-01 and Pusa Sawani x AOL-08-05.
