Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out thirteen broccoli genotypes under Randomized Block Design with three replications to assess the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance for various horticultural traits. Analysis of variance revealed that there is a considerable variability exists among the genotypes for all the fourteen characters. High genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variation were recorded for leaf length (23.89 and 24.25), curd weight/plant (35.34 and 35.47) and Curd yield (33.67 and 34.85). High heritability combined with high genetic advance as percent mean were observed for number of leaves (89.60 and 29.08 percent), leaf length (97.00 and 48.47 percent), leaf width (84.60 and 24.74percent), days to curd initiation (91.50 and 20.74 percent), curd length (97.00 and 30.36 percent), curd width (98.10 and 41.07 percent), curd weight/plant (99.20 and 72.52 percent), curd yield (93.40 and 67.02 percent) and Ascorbic acid (96.70 and 24.68 percent).
