Abstract:

Present study was conducted on 155 lentil genotypes including five check varieties viz., Kota Masoor-1, Kota Masoor-2, JL-3, IPL-316 and L-4076 for genetic evaluation at experimental field of AICRP on MULLaRP, Agricultural Research Station, Ummedganj, Agriculture University, Kota, Rajasthan, India. These genotypes were sown in Augmented Randomized Complete Block Design during Rabi, 2019-20. Observations were recorded for thirteen different yield and its related parameters. The analysis of variance indicated the existence of significant differences among genotypes for all the characters studied. Biological yield per plant, number of peduncles per plant, number of pods per plant, number of primary branches per plant, number of secondary branches per plant and seed yield per plant recorded high GCV, high heritability and high genetic gain. The correlation coefficient analysis indicated that biological yield per plant, harvest index, number of peduncles per plant, number of pods per plant, number of primary branches per plant and plant height exhibited significant correlation with seed yield per plant. Path analysis exhibited that out of seven characters which were positively correlated with seed yield per plant, only three characters viz., biological yield per plant, harvest index and number of pods per plant had positive and high direct effect. The positive correlation of other characters was mainly due to their indirect effects via biological yield per plant, harvest index and number of pods per plant. Hence these characters may be considered for further breeding programme to improve the seed yield in lentil.
