Response to selection in early segregating generation in fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)

Published on

Selected seven F
4 progeny families and the same number
of corresponding F3 parent families were evaluated in
paired rows in compact family block design with three
replications, for primary branches per plant, pods per plant
and seed per pod as an independent selection criterion in
fenugreek. Out of the three selection criterion, highest
realized selection response in percentage was recorded
for pods per plant (34.76%), and was followed by that for
primary branches per plant and seeds per pod. The highest
realized correlated response to selection for seed yield
per plant was recorded under the selection criterion,
primary branches per plant (25.89%), followed by that
under selection criterion pods per plant (24.84%) and
under seeds per pod (14.99%). Thus the selection criterion,
primary branches per plant and pods per plant were more
efficient than the seeds per pod
