Studies on genetic variability in coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.)

Ravi Kumar Yadav, Dr. DP Mishra and Dr. GC Yadav
The present investigation entitled was executed at Main Experiment Station Department of Vegetable Science, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Ayodhya (U.P.) during Rabi 2019-20 to estimate the genetic variability among the genotypes of coriander. Experimental material for the study consisted of 72 genotypes including two checks (Hisar Anand and N.D. Cor. 2). The experiment was conducted in Augmented Design in 7 blocks (10 genotypes + 2 checks in each block). Observations were recorded on 11 quantitative traits viz. plant height, number of branches per plant, number of nodes per plant, days to 50% flowering, umbel diameter (cm), number of umbels per plant, number of umbellets per umbel, number of fruits 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 all the characters except fruits per umbel was significant and variation due to checks were highly significant for all the characters except non-significant for fruits per umbel. Based on mean performance of seed yield and yield components, the genotypes NDCor-91 followed by NDCor-81, NDCor-72, NDCor-52 and NDCor-105 were identified as most promising genotypes for yield and major component traits. High magnitudes of variability were observed for umbels per plant. High heritability (broad sense) along with high genetic advance in per cent of mean were estimated for plant height (cm), Number of nodes per plant, yield per plant (g), test weight (g), umbel diameter (cm), umbellets per umbel, fruits per umbellate, branches per plant, umbels per plant, and fruits per umbel.
