Present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the single cross QPM hybrids for quantitative and quality traits. The results indicated that the hybrids showed significant variability for most of the traits studied. Among the F1 hybrids SC-8 yielded the highest grain yield per plant (170.77 g) followed by SC-30 (170.41 g), SC-24 (168.69 g) and SC-20 (161.96 g). Two F1 hybrids (SC-13 and SC-19) had high tryptophan content among all the hybrids. The estimate of broad sense heritability was the highest for grain yield per plant (96.70%) followed by plant height (96.00%), tryptophan content (93.90%), days to 50 per cent pollen shed (89.70%), protein content (89.70%), days 50 per cent silking (84.50%), 75 per cent maturity (84.50%), cob placement height (88.10%) and grains per row (82.10%). The estimated genetic advance as a per cent of mean was recorded the high for grain yield per plant (61.01%). Thus, these traits are predominantly under the control of additive gene action and hence these characters can be improved by selection.
