The present experiment was laid down in randomized block design in two different environments (E1 and E2) with the objective to assess the magnitude of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance among 18 yield attributing traits in brinjal. The analysis of variance revealed that significant genetic differences were present among the brinjal genotypes representing the existence of significant amount of variability widening the greater scope for the improvement of concerned characters through selection. A moderate to wide range of mean values among the genotypes for different characters were observed. Moderate to high genotypic coefficient of variation together with moderate to high heritability and genetic advance as per cent of mean was reported for majority of the characters under study except days to 50 percent flowering, number of primary branches, fruit diameter and days to first fruiting in E2 season which indicated predominant role of additive genetic component in the expression of these traits arising a chance of genetic improvement through phenotypic selection.

Keywords: Brinjal, Genetic variability, Heritability, GCV, Genetic advance as a percent of mean and PCV
