Genetical analysis in rice (Oryza sativa L.) Under saline environment
Author(s): P Karthikeyan
Abstract: Genetic parameters of variability and heritability of different characters were studied in 60 genotypes of rice. The maximum genotypic coefficient of variability and phenotypic coefficient of variability were observed for straw yield per plant, grain yield per plant, total biological yield per plant, number of filled geains per panicle. The heritability estimates were highest for 100-gain weight. The genetic advance as percentage of mean were higher for total biological yield per plant and gain yield per plant will be useful for further breeding programme.
