Abstract:
Thirty-nine genotypes of faba bean (Vicia faba L.) were evaluated in a field study to assess genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance. The analysis of variance revealed that there were highly significant differences for all the characters except pods per plant, pod fertility percent, seeds per pod and yield per plant. Higher genotypic coefficient and phenotypic coefficient of variation were observed for number of branches per plant and harvest index. Heritability and Genetic advance were high for all the characters except seeds per pod and pods per plant which had low genetic advance along with moderate heritability indicating the involvement of additive type of gene action in controlling these characters.
