Genetic Variability and Heritability Estimates in Summer Mustard (Brassica juncea)

Tariq Mahmood, Muhammad Ali, Shahid Iqbal and Muhammad Anwar    

Abstract: In mustard (Brassica juncea) broad-sense heritabilities, coefficients of variability and genetics advance values were computed for primary branches, plant height, siliquas per plant and seed yield per plant in four single crosses. Number of siliquas per plant were highly heritable coupled with high genetic advance and coefficient of variability. It reflected a great scope for selection. Cross combinations 86-4-3 x Poorbi Raya and 86-16-1 x Poorbi Raya were particularly valuable for various characters. They gave high heritability and genetics advance for most characters. Indicating that selection should lead to a fast genetic improvement of the material.
