Studies on heritability and genetic advance for the quantitative traits in bottle gourd [Lagenaria siceraria (Mol.) Standl.] over seasons under salt affected soil

Author(s):

Abstract:
Present investigations were carried out in bottle gourd to assess the heritability and genetic advance for yield and quality traits. Twenty seven bottle gourd hybrids generated by crossing 9 lines with 3 testers cross, along with their twelve parents evaluated in a randomized complete block design with three replication at the Main Experiment Station (which is salt affected), Department of Vegetable Science, ANDUA&T, Kumarganj, Ayodhya, during the of Zaid seasons of year 2020 and 2021. High heritability coupled with moderate genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed for primary branches per plant, fruit length, days to first female flower anthesis, days to first harvest, dry matter, days to first male flower anthesis, number of node per vine and internodal length and moderate estimate of genetic advance in per cent of mean (10-20%) was observed for number of node per vine, The results indicated that these characters had additive gene effect and therefore, these are more reliable for effective selection for their further improvement.
