Abstract

Twenty four advanced lines with one check of field pea were assessed for variability and character association for yield and its attributes. Data revealed that DPFPD 8 was the highest yielder followed by KFPD 59 having moderately susceptibility to powdery mildew. Similarity in PCV and GCV of all traits showed low environmental influence. High heritability estimates were recorded for all characters. High heritability coupled with high GA observed for yield/plant, pods/plant, plant height, seeds/pod and 100 seed weight indicate additive gene effect. Yield/plant exhibited positive correlations with branches/plant, pods/plant, seeds/pod and 100 seed weight. 100 seed weight, pods/plant, plant height, seeds/pod and days to 50% flowering had higher coheritability estimates with yield/plant.
