Abstract

The results on genetic parameters in 43 cluster bean genotypes collected from different parts of the country revealed, high estimates of variation for number of branches at 45 and 90 days after sowing (DAS), number of pods per cluster, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, vegetable pod yield per plant, weight of ten pods, seed endosperm gum content, plant spread (E-W), plant spread (N-S), and vegetable pod yield per plot. The high estimates of heritability coupled with high values of genetic advance over mean (GAM) were observed for the characters number of branches at 45 DAS, plant height at 90 DAS, number of branches at 90 DAS, stem girth, plant spread (E-W), plant spread (N-S), number of pods per cluster, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length, vegetable pod yield per plant, vegetable pod yield per plot, weight per ten pods, hundred seed weight, seed yield per plant, seed endosperm gum content, protein content in seeds indicates predominance of additive component for these traits and hence direct selection would be more effective in improving these traits.
