In the present investigation a study was conducted to assess the nature and magnitude of yield attributing characters. The inheritance of the character viz; plant height and flower to pod ratio was controlled by additive gene action. The rest of the nine characters under the control of non additive gene action therefore the heterosis breeding is recommended to exploit the benefit of hybrid vigor. Heritability is good index of the transmission of character from parents to their offspring. The yield contributing characters Viz. plant height (56.07), branches per plant (39.91), including grain yield (39.72) per plant had exhibited moderate level of involvement of genes to control the transmission of the character. The features like days to maturity (32.25), flower to pod ratio (48.82), percent flower drop (34.73), and protein percent (36.85) had expressed similar trend of narrow sense heritability. While the character like days to 50 percent flowering (13.19), pods per plant (12.22), 100 seed weight (8.66) and seeds per pod (17.04percent) had shown the transmission of the characters under the large influence of different environmental factors.
