STUDIES ON GENETIC VARIABILITY AND COMPONENT ANALYSIS IN MACROSPERMA AND MICROSPERMA LENTILS

Published on

Studies on genetic variability and component analysis was under taken in lentil collection
comprising 42 macrospenna and 40 micTosperma genotypes. The parallelism in the
magnitude of PCY, GCY, heritability and genetic advance for all the traits in both types of
lentils revealed considerable similarity in genetic variability possessed by these two
varietal groups. The magnitude of heritability in conjunction with genetic advance in both
types of lentils revealed additive genetic control for days to flowering, dominance or
epistatic effects for days to maturity, and nonadditive gene action for the remaining
characters. The path analysis indicated the importance of pods/plant or seeds/plant as the
most important parameter contributing to seed yield/plant in macTosperma and
micTospenna lentils
