Author(s):

Abstract:
The present investigation involving 7 parents and 21 crosses in diallel design in grown in a randomized block design was carried out during 2014-2015 at G.B. Pant University of agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. Analysis of variance revealed significant mean squares of general and specific combining abilities for all the traits studied. Pant lobia-2, Pant Lobia-3 and Pant Lobia-5 had good GCA for seed yield per hectare. Pant Lobia-1 was best general combiner for number of pods per plant and 100-seed weight whereas; Pant Lobia-2 for number of pods per plant, seed weight per plant, seed yield per hectare. Pant Lobia-3 for seed yield per hectare, seed weight per plant, and days to pod maturity; Pant Lobia-5 for plant height, seed yield per hectare, 100-seed weight, seed weight per plant ; PGCP-59 and PGCP-63 were for plant height; PVCP-20 for green pod weight per plant and pod length.
