Evaluation of biparental progenies for horticultural and quality traits in late cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L.)

Published on

Sixteen biparental progenies developed from a cross PSB-1
x KT-9 in late cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis
L.) were evaluated in RBD with three replications for
horticultural and quality traits. BIPs 13, 17 and 19
possessed good yield and quality traits. PCV was low
for all the traits except gross plant weight and net curd
weight. High heritability and low genetic gain recorded
for days to marketable maturity indicated the nonadditive
gene effects for this trait. Rest of the traits had low to
moderate heritability with low genetic gain indicated the
influence of environment. Net curd weight had highly
significant and positive association with leaf length, leaf
breadth, gross plant weight and harvest index. Path
analysis revealed that contributions of gross plant weight
and harvest index were maximum directly/indirectly.
