Twenty-four F)'s, obtained from line x tester mating of eight lines and three testers
were evaluated for yield and Its components. The heterosis over mid-parent and over better
parent was estimated for all the traits. Maximum mid-parental heterosis for seed yield was
recorded by fCCl 87322 x Avrodhi cross while maximum heterobeltiosis for yield given by
ICCV2 x Uday cross. It was also revealed that crosses having high mean performance always'
exhibited high heterosis in desired direction for almost all characters except for pods/plant.
