Estimation of Heritability and Genetic Gain of Some Metric Traits in Six Hybrid Population of Spring Wheat

Abdul Sattar, Muhammad Aslam Chowdhry and Muhammad Kashif

Abstract:
Broad-sense heritability and genetic advance value were computed for flag leaf area, flag leaf weight, specific flag leaf area, specific flag leaf weight, plant height, tillers per plant, spike length, spikelets per spike, grains per spike, 1000-grains weight and grain yield per plant involving six bread wheat crosses viz., WLRG-6 x 5039, WLRG-7 x 5039, WLRG-6 x LU26S, WLRG-1 x LU26S and WLRG-1 x 5039. Most of these traits showed moderate to high estimates of heritability with appreciable genetic advance values. Crosses WLRG-7 x LU26S, WLRG-1 x 5039 and WLRG-7 x 5039 are of considerable interest showing high heritability estimates for all the characters studied.
