Abstract


Combining ability and genetic variance for nine quantitative traits in pigeonpea [Cajanus Cajan (L.) Millsp] were estimated through line x tester analysis involving four male sterile lines, 23 testers and 92 F1 crosses. The analysis of variance revealed there were significant differences among the parents for all characters and for hybrids except for number of seeds per pod. Non additive gene effects were predominant for all characters. The parents ICPA-2092, ICPA-20108, ICPA-2047, BDN-2, ICP-12320 were good general combiner for grain yield and pods per plant. The two crosses ICPA-2092 x ICP-12057 and ICPA-2047 x BSMR- 253A exhibited high SCA effects for grain yield per plant. The study was carried out during 2009-10 to 2010-11 under International Central Research Institute for Semi Arid Tropics funded project at Department of Agricultural Botany, M.K.V., Parbhani
