Pallavi Yergude, MB Rakshe and VV Ujjainkar
The present investigation was undertaken for evaluating the genetic analysis of thirty-six blackgram genotypes during kharif, 2014 at Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola using randomized block design. Analysis of variance indicated significant differences among the genotypes for all morphological characters investigated. The phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) was higher than the genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV). The high values of GCV and PCV observed for the number of primary branches per plant, pod weight per plant, seed yield per plot, days to 50-percent flowering, 100 seed weight, the number of pod per plant, high heritability coupled with the high genetic advance was observed to shelling percent, days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, plant height. The yield per plant was significant and positively correlated with plant height, the number of primary branches per plant, days to maturity, 100 seed weight, the number of seed per pod, the number of pod per plant, pod weight per plant, the number of cluster per plant, the number of pod per cluster. Promising genotypes in present study viz., AKU-15, AKU-10-2 and AKU-11-6 having high seed yielding capacity coupled protein percent above the mean performance and top four genotypes viz., AKU-15 and AKU-10-1 exhibited higher performances for almost all the character among all thirty-six genotypes studied.
