Studies on variability for yield and yield attributing traits in pigeonpea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.]

Author(s): Dharana P Patel, PR Patel, DG Patel and DM Suthar
Abstract: Fifty pigeonpea genotypes were evaluated for the assessment of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance expressed as percent of mean during Kharif 2021. The analysis of variance revealed the presence of sufficient variability among the fifty genotypes for different characters indicating the presence of sufficient genetic variability in the experimental material. The value of phenotypic coefficient of variations were slightly higher than genotypic coefficient of variations indicating the sufficient influence of environmental factor in most of the characters. High estimates of GCV and PCV were observed for the characters viz., biological yield per plant, number of branch per plant, harvest index, seed yield per plant and days to flowering. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance expressed as percent of mean were observed various characters like, days to flowering, days to maturity, number of seed per pod, pod length, number of pod per plant, number of branch per plant, seed yield per plant, harvest index and biological yield per plant, indicating the presence of additive gene action and less environmental influence on the characters and existence of sufficient heritable variation and wider scope for effective selection.
