Assessment of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance in coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.)

Ramesh Rajbhar, CN Ram, Pradip Kumar, OP Rao and Shiva Nath
The present investigation entitled “Studies on genetic variability, character association and genetic divergence for seed yield and its contributing traits in coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.)” was carried out using fifty two genotypes including two checks (NDCor-2 and Hissar Anand) at the Main Experiment Station, Department of Vegetable Science, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj Ayodhya (U.P.) India, during Rabi 2019-2020 in Augmented Block Design with five blocks. The observations were recorded on eleven quantitative traits i.e. plant height (cm), number of braches per plant, number of node per plant, days to 50% flowering, umbel diameter (cm), number of umbels per plant, number of fruits per umbel, number of umbellates per umbel, number of fruits per umbellate, 1000 seed weight (g) and seed yield per plant (g). The variation due to the blocks were highly significant for the plant height (cm), umbels per plant and branches per plant, umbel diameter (cm), fruits per umbel in significant and variance due to checks were highly significant for plant height, and branches per plant, umbellate per umbel in significant for test weight and other characters are non-significant. Umbel per plant (14.95) showed highest phenotypic coefficient of variation and highest genotypic coefficient of variation was observed for umbels per plant (14.88). High heritability was expressed for Plant height (cm) (99), The highest genetic advance was expressed for umbels per plant (15.62) and Genetic advance in percent of mean was highest in case of umbels per plant (30.49).
