Abstract

The genetic variability study was carried out in the segregating populations of three crosses. The cross LBG 645/LBG 20 recorded high estimates of PCV and GCV for plant height, number of branches per plant, number of seeds per pod and seed yield per plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean were observed for plant height, number of branches per plant, number of clusters per plant and number of pods per plant. Number of pods per cluster recorded high heritability and high genetic advance in LBG 685/LBG 20. High heritability with high genetic advance for pod length in LBG 645/LBG 20.
