Combining ability analysis of seed yield and seed quality parameters in a 12 x 12full diallel
crossing programme indicated that MC 13 (Coimbatore Local) was a good general combiner
for number ofseedsIFofruit and l00-seed weightand culture No. MC 84for field emergence,
seedling length and seedling dry weight. Considering the seed quality parameters and
heterosis for yield, the combinations Co 1 x Coimbatore Long Green, KAU MC 84 x MC 13,
and its reciprocal, MC 36 x Coimbatore Long Green, Priya x Co 1, and MC 13 x MC 36 were
found to be promising.
