Evaluation of Heritability and Correlation for Seed Yield and Yield Components in Faba Bean (Vicia faba L.)
Ozlem Alan and Hakan Geren

Abstract:
In this study, heritability and correlation were determined for seed yield and its components by using five faba bean (Vicia faba L.) cultivars (Eresen-87, Filiz-99, Sevilla, Kemalpaşa and Tarzan). Correlation analysis between seed yield and yield characteristics indicated that seed yield had significant positive relationship with seeds per pod. Also, significant correlations were found between yield components; pods per plant with plant height and seeds per pod with number of stems. Heritability values of various traits were: 29% for plant height, 17.6% for number of stems, 3% for pods per plant, 47% for seeds per pod, 77% for seed yield, 30% for 1000-seed weight and 33% for hectolitre weight. These results showed that environmental conditions have a greater effect on pods per plant and number of stems than on other characteristics. It is hoped that these findings would be useful for future breeding programmes involving this important crop.
