Abstract:

The present research was conducted during Kharif-2021 at the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, J.V. College, Baraut, Baghpat, to examine 40 black gram diverse genotypes in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The estimates of the phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) and genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) were observed high for the number of primary branches per plant, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, biological yield per plant, harvest index and seed yield per plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percent of mean was obtained for a number of primary branches per plant, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, biological yield per plant, harvest index and seed yield per plant. Based on the mean performance of the genotypes, KPU 1097, KPU410-31, KPU1102, KPU1116 and KPU12-155 were superior not only for seed yield per plant but also for other yield contributing traits.
