Investigation on genetic variability in horse gram [Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam.) Verdc.] under moisture stress condition

Author(s):
Visakh RL and Bindu MR
Abstract:
Thirty horse gram genotypes were evaluated for yield and yield contributing characters under moisture stress condition at Farming System Research Station, Sadanandapuram under Kerala Agricultural University. Analysis of variance revealed significant variation among the horse gram genotypes for all character under investigation. For all the characters under consideration, genotypic coefficient of variation was found to be lower than phenotypic coefficient of variation. High heritability along with high GAM was observed in days to 50% flowering, number of primary branches per plant, plant height, number of pods per plant, harvest index, days to maturity, leaf area index, root dry weight, and seed yield per plant. Characters with high heritability (H2) coupled with high genetic advance are governed by additive gene action and hence, selection based on the above said traits will aid in the improvement of horse gram.
