Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Studies on genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance for certain metric traits in Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum- garacum L.)..” was conducted during Rabi seasons of 2018-19 (E1) and 2019-20 (E2) heritability and genetic advance using diallel mating design (excluding reciprocal) at the Main Experiment Station (MES) of the Department of Vegetable Science, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Narendra Nagar, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) India. Ten diverse parents of fenugreek were crossed in a diallel fashion (excluding reciprocals) for generating experimental material. All the Ten parents and their 45 hybrids were grown in Randomized Block design with three replications. Observations were recorded on the 11 characters viz., Days to 50 per cent flowering, Days to maturity, Plant height (cm), Number of branches per plant, pod length (cm), Number of pods per plant, Number of seed per pods, Test weight (g), Biological yield (g), Harvest index (%) and yield per plant (g).
High heritability (broad sense) along with high genetic advance in per cent of mean were observed for most of the important economic traits showing ample scope of crop improvement by selection.
