Biometrical analysis of yield and its contributing characters was made for yard long bean with the use of sixty two genotypes. Phenotypic variation was greater than that of genotypic and environment variations for all the characters concerned. Minute differences between genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variation indicated less environmental influences on considered characters. High heritability in broad sense and genetic advance estimated for the characters viz., plant height (99.51% and 95.33%), pod yield per plant (98.85 % and 73.51 %), green pod length (98.21% and 80.21%), green pod weight (98.73% and 66.41%), number of pods per plant (95.89 % and 63.48 %), number of pods per plot (96.71% and 72.63%), estimated pod yield per hectare (99.46% and 77.54%), crop duration (92.22% and 21.86%), ascorbic acid (98.82% and 22.19%), crude protein (98.84% and 43.03) and dry matter content (98.16% and 22.11%).
