Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted at experimental research farm of Agriculture Botany College of Agriculture Latur, during kharif 2021 (Crossing) and summer 2022 (evaluation), with a view to study the combining ability of nine parental lines and their resultant crosses through half diallel mating design in a Randomized block design with two replications. From the current investigation, the parents Arka Anamika, IC-3769-A and Phule Vimukta were found to be the good general combiners as they displayed significant gca effects in desirable direction for most of the characters like plant height, number of branches per plant, fruit length, fruit diameter, fruit weight. From the studies on specific combining ability, it was observed that cross combination Parbhani Kranti x IC-3769-A, Arka Abhay x Varsha Uphar, Varsha Uphar x Phule Vimukta were best specific combinations for most of the traits.
