Abstract:
The experiment on 108 treatments of wheat along with 80 F1’s, 24 parental lines (20 females + 4 males) and four standard variety (KH-65, KRL-1702, KRL-1714, NW-1014) of wheat was conducted to work out the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance effects of their various attributes on grain yield. The high estimates (>15%) of phenotypic (PCV) and genotypic (GCV) coefficients of variation were recorded in case of tiller per plant (PCV=16.37%, GCV=9.14%). High estimates of broad sense heritability (> 75%) were recorded for plant height (80.00%) and Tiller/plant, in sodic soil showed moderate estimate of genetic advance in percent of mean (10-20%). High heritability and genetic advance indicate that the additive nature of gene action and reliability of those characters for selection and emerged as ideal traits for improvement through selection.
