Abstract

Genotypic coeffeclent of variation (GCV) and heritability and genetic advance
were assessed In 20- diverse genotypes of horsegram. Genotypes differed significantly
for all the characters studied. Pods per plant and clusters per plant expressed
high genetic advance coupled with high heritability and GCV. Indicating thereby
the preponderance of addatlve gene effects for these traits.
