- High estimates of genotypic coefficient of variation and phenotypic coefficient of variation were observed for seed yield per plant followed by biological yield and number of pods per plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was recorded for economical yield suggesting greater role of non-additive gene action in their heritance. On the basis of mean performance of the genotypes, CSJ-1093 was recorded high yield among 22 genotypes under study. Characters such as economical yield, biological yield should be given top priority for effective selection. The present investigation revealed that the plant height, pods per plant, seed index and harvesting index shown positive correlation with seed yield.
