Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out to study the stability parameters for seed yield in Linseed. The studies on the estimation of stability parameters revealed that no genotype was stable for all characters. For plant height, genotypes FRW-09 and LSL-19-604 demonstrated stable performance, whereas genotypes FRW-09 and Binwa and LSL-19-604 demonstrated stable performance for number of primary branches per plant and secondary branches per plant, respectively. For number of capsules per plant, the genotypes EX-301-1 and EC-1628 demonstrated a fair amount of stability and are predicted to do well in all environments. Special adaptations were made for TL-189 and FRW-12 to thrive in environments with few seeds per capsule. The 1000 seed weight varieties GS- 49 and FRW-12 were specially adapted to a favourable environment (g). For oil content (%), EC-567 displayed average stability across all environments. With higher mean values, the genotypes TL-189 and Pratapalsi-2 demonstrated excellent adaptability to all environments with regard to the most crucial characteristic, seed yield per plant (g).
