Abstract

The present investigation was carried out with 56 cluster bean genotypes during kharif 2018. The investigation was conducted to study the variability, heritability and genetic advance expressed as per cent of mean for yield and yield attributing characters in cluster bean genotypes. The genotypes were significantly different for all the characters studied, which indicated scope for further genetic studies. High values of PCV with correspondingly high values of GCV were observed in plant spread, number of branches per plant, average weight of 50 pods and pod length which indicated greater extent of variability that could be ascribed to genotype. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean was recorded in plant height, plant spread, number of branches per plant, internodal length, number of pods per cluster, average weight of 50 pods, pod length, 100 seed weight, pod yield per plant and protein content of pods.
