Abstract

Combining ability analysis was undertaken using nine parental lines and their 36 F1 hybrids of bottle gourd obtained from half diallel for yield and its contributing characters. The mean squares due to GCA and SCA were significant for all the characters. The ratio 2g/2s suggested that non-additive gene action had greater role with inheritance of characters. Out of nine parents, UL-4 was the best general combiner as it showed high gca effect in desirable direction for most of the traits. Regarding sca effects, UL-2 x UL-4 showed highest sca effects for total fruit yield per plant and UL-2 x UL-10 for days to first harvest.
