Genetic Variability Studies of Yield and Quality Traits in Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)

Rukhsar Ahmad Dar and Jag Paul Sharma

The present study was aimed to investigate the yield and quality traits in tomato in order to generate information regarding the extent of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance in Solanum lycopersicum L. The experiment was laid under Randomized Block Design with three replications to investigate the genetic variability among 60 genotypes. Analysis of coefficient of variation revealed that magnitude of phenotypic coefficient of variation was higher than genotypic coefficient of variation for all the characters under study. The higher values of Phenotypic Coefficient of Variation (PCV) were recorded for yield quintals per hectare, average fruit weight, number of fruits per plant whereas high Genotypic Coefficients of Variation (GCV) was recorded with β-carotene. High heritability was recorded for the characters β-carotene, ascorbic acid and lycopene content inferring easy selection and improvement of these characters in breeding lines.
