Abstract


Heterosis and combining ability was estimated for oil content and oil quality traits in Indian mustard with the help of line x tester matting design of total 34 accessions comprised of ten parental genotypes (six female and four male) and their 24 F1 hybrids of Indian mustard at S.D.Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar. Eight hybrids recorded significant and positive heterobeltiosis for oil yield. The range of heterobeltiosis varied from -9.48 per cent (SKM-9033 x GM 2) to 6.96 per cent (BPR-610-50-6 x VARUNA). Parent PUSA BOLD was proved to be good donors for oil content, linolenic acid and glucosinolate. PBR-122 for oil content, oleic acid, linolenic acid, erucic acid and glucosinolate, PCR-7 good combiner for erucic acid, SKM-9033 having good gene for increasing oleic acid and linoleic acid content. Parent BPR-610-50-6 good for oil content, oleic acid, linolenic acid and glucosinolate. The hybrid SKM-9033 x VARUNA pursued by BPR-610-50-6 x VARUNA and BIO-902 x PUSA BOLD and SKM-9820 x GM 2 proved high sca effects for oil content
