Appraisement of heritability in narrow sense and genetic advance in per cent of mean for different characters in tomato (Solanum lycopersicon L.)
Jitendra Kumar and GC Yadav
An investigation was carried out to evaluate the 36 genotypes (28 F1 and parental lines) of tomato (Solanum lycopersicon L.) at Main Experimental Station, Department of Vegetable Science, A.N.D. University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) during season 2019-20 and 2020-2021. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. The data were recorded for 17 characters including total fruit yield per plant. The findings of the present investigation revealed that high heritability (h2ns) coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean were observed for plant height, average fruit weight and total fruit yield per plant in both the seasons and pooled. High estimates of heritability with high genetic advance as per cent of mean provides a clear picture to the breeders for improvement during the process of selection.
