This experiment was having two sub experiments viz., cross SPV245 x SPV 1822 (A X C) and SPV 1430 x SPV 1822 (B X C). Test crosses for this experiment was obtained by crossing the 10 MS lines with both the parents and their F1’s for both the sets. In this way the each sub experiment was having 30 hybrids. Both the sub experiments were conducted in RBD with three replications following the 45 cm between rows and 10 cm between plants spacing. In present investigation difference between testers in line in both  sets of TTC were significant. The total and “j+l” type of epistasis were significant for all the characters in most of the sets. Whereas, “i” type epistasis was significant for 4, 3 and 8 characters in set SPV 245 × SPV 1430, SPV 245 × SPV 1822 and SPV 1430 × SPV 1822, respectively. This was on account of significance of epistasis in one or other lines. After dropping the epistatic lines the unbiased D and H were estimated. Both D and H were significant for all the characters except additive variance (D) for green fodder yield and seed index in set SPV 1430 x SPV 1822, days to maturity in set SPV 245 x SPV 1430 and ear head lenght in set SPV 245 x SPV 1822.
