Author(s):
Pallavi, Alankar Singh and YV Singh
Abstract:
The investigation involved was carried out during 2014-2015 at G.B. Pant University of agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. Pant Lobia-1, Pant Lobia-2, Pant Lobia-3, Pant Lobia-5, PGCP-59, PGCP-63 and PVCP-20 along with their 21 F1’s were evaluated. Crossing between the parental inbred lines was made in half-diallel fashion (without reciprocals) during 2014/15 cropping season.Being a self-pollinated crop, the scope for exploitation of hybrid vigour looking to the biological feasibility and gene action need to be searched out. Pant Lobia-2 and Pant Lobia-5 for iron content and zinc content and Pant Lobia-3 for zinc content found to had best heterobeltiosis and economic heterosis.
