Nature and magnitude of heterosis was studied for ten quantitative characters in a diallel mating design in oat with eight parents in randomized block design with three replications at Crop Research Center of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut, during rabi season 2015-16 and 2016-2017. Out of 28 F1’s, 15 cross combination expressed high heterotic response with significant and positive heterosis and among these four crosses viz., Kent x JHO851, Kent x UPO212, JHO-99-2 x JHO851 and UPO 212 x NDO612 showed heterosis per cent more than 27% over better and mid parents for 8-9 traits which suggested that these attributes were governed by additive genes. These crosses which showed very high level of heterosis can be exploited further in future breeding programme to develop high yielding genotypes in forage oat.
