Abstract

Narrow sense heritability and genetic advance were studied for yield and its components of 20 parents partial diallel for F 1 and F 2 generations in yellow sarson. High heritability estimates were observed for days to flower, days to maturity, siliqua length and siliquae/plant in both the generations. High genetic advance was recorded for days to flower, siliquae/plant and seed yield/plant in both the generations. The days to flower and siliquae/piant had high heritability coupled with high genetic advance (%mean) indicated that heritability was due to additive gene effects and progress can be achieved by selection in segregating populations.
