Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted in the field of the Horticulture Research Farm, ICAR-National Research Center on Seed Spices, Tabiji, Ajmer (Raj.) during the crop season 2016-17. The experiment was conducted with 8 genotypes (ACr-1, Azad Dhania-1, RCr-435, RCr-436, RCr-446, RCr-684, Hisar Sugandh and Hisar Anand) in Randomized Block Design with four replications. Analysis of variance indicated that significant variation were found for plant height (30, 60, 90 days), days to 50% flowering, number of seeds per umbel, days to first flowering, number of umbels per plant, number of secondary branches, seed yield per hectare, seed yield per plant, test weight, days to harvesting, number of umbellets per umbel while, number of primary branches, days to germination and essential oil content were found non-significant. The highest estimates of GCV along with PCV were found for number of seeds per umbel, essential oil, seed yield per plant, number of umbellets per umbel while, moderate to high GCV & PCV were found for the characters viz., days to first and 50% flowering, number of primary and secondary branches and reaming characters viz., days to harvesting, days to germination and test weight were found low. The estimate of heritability was found very high for seed yield per hectare followed by number of seeds per umbel, days to 50% flowering, essential oil, test weight seed yield per plant and number of secondary branches for high while, low for days to germination. The genetic advance was recorded highest for number of seeds per umbel, essential oil, seed yield per plant and number of umbellets per umbel seed yield per hectare while, low in days to required harvesting, number of umbels per plant, test weight and days of germination.
