Abstract

An evaluation of 72 lines of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) has shown
existence of high variability. for seed yield, number of pods per plant and protein content
while lowvariability was recorded for days to flowering and number of grains per pod. High
broad sense heritability and genetic advance estimates were obtained for protein content and
number of pods per plant. Based upon the correlations and path coefficient analysis it was
concluded that number of pods per plant, test wel'ght and plant height were the most
important trait
