Combining ability analysis was done for nine parents including five female lines and four testers male with their twenty crosses. Laxmi and RH – 406 was conferred as the great general combiner distinguished for “grain yield per plant” because of its positive GCA impact. Among the four testers, Varuna, PM – 27 and Pusa Bold were distinguished as great combiner for the same trait and other related characteristics. “Lxmi” was recognized as great general combiner for the greater part of the yield related attributes. C.G.Sarson x Pusa showed the highest SCA value followed by Pusa Agrime x Varuna for “grain yield per plant”. Among the hybrids C.G. Sarson x Kranti and Laxmi x Varuna were reported to be the best for heterosis effect for all characters taken under study.

Keywords: Grain yield, SCA value, heterosis effect
