Abstract:
A field experiment with 65 genotypes of faba bean (15 lines x 3 testers along with 2 checks) was evaluated at Genetics and Plant Breeding Research Farm, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) during rabi 2017-18 to 2019-20. The experiment was laid out on Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications to record thirteen yields and yield contributing traits of faba bean viz., days to 50 per cent flowering, days to maturity, chlorophyll content, plant height (cm), number of branches per plant, pod length (cm), number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, biological yield per plant (g), harvest-index (%), 100-seed weight (g), protein content (%) and grain yield per plant (g). The physico-chemical characteristic was the soil of pH-9.2, EC-3.2 dSm-1, ESP-45%, sandy loam, low in organic carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and rich in potash. In order to grow good crops, all the recommended cultural practices follow. The analysis of variance revealed that all the quantative traits were highly significant indicating a wide range of variability in the existing parents, hybrids, and sergeants. The grain yield per plant was found positively and significantly associated with biological yield per plant followed by number of pods per plant, harvest index, and number of seeds per pod in F1’s while in F2’s; biological yield per plant followed by number of pods per plant and harvest index. Besides, few quantitative traits were intercorelated to each other in hybrids and as well as in the segregating population. Hence, emphasis should be given to select the above traits to enhance the production and productivity of faba bean.
