Abstract:
The present investigation entiled “Studies on genetic variability, heritability in narrow sense and genetic advance in percent of mean in brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)” was conducted -during Rabi season 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 ofVegetable Science,Acharya Narendra Deva University of agriculture & Technology, Narendra nagar,Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) India. Ten diverse parents of brinjal ware crossed in a diallel fusion (excluding reciprocals) for generating experimental material. All the Ten parents and their 45 hybrids ware grown in randomized block design with three replications. Observation were recorded on the 16 characters viz., days to 50% flowering, leaf length (cm), leaf width, number of flower per inflorescence, days to first harvesting, plant height (cm), primary branches per plant, number of fruit per cluster, number of fruits per plant, average fruit weight (g), fruit length (cm), fruit circumference (cm), yield per plant (g), specific gravity, TSS (%) and dry weight/ 100g.
High heritability (broad sense) along with high genetic advance in per cent of meanwere observed for most of important economic traits showing amplescope of crop improvement by selection.
