Genetic Variability, Heritability and Genetic Advance of Growth and Yield Components of Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) Genotypes
Priyanka Bijalwan  | Naidu Madhvi
Abstract: Genetic variability, heritability, genetic advance and genetic advance as a percent of mean for fifteen characters were assessed by field evaluation of sixteen chilli genotypes at Vegetable Research Block of Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Ranichauri Campus, Tehri-Garhwal during Kharif 2014. The phenotypic coefficient of variation was higher than genotypic coefficient of variation for all the characters indicating the influence of environment on these characters. High GCV and PCV, heritability and genetic advance as percentage of mean were noted for fruit weight at edible maturity (61.04 % & 61.37 %, 99.02 % and 125.09 %), fruit yield per plant (47.67 % & 48.24 %, 97.63 % and 97.03 %) and number of fruits per plant (39.77 % & 40.11 %, 98.31 % and 81.24 %). Therefore, selection should be imposed considering these traits for improvement of population in chilli in temperate hills of Uttarakhand.
