Abstract

An experiment was conducted to study genetic variability and heritability among ten Brassica napus L. genotypes for yield and yield associated traits. The genotypes (CA-2, CA-4, CA-5, DH-2, DH-3, DH-4, DH-5, DH-6, DH-8 and CA-20) were evaluated in randomized complete block design with three replications. Data were recorded on days to 50% flowering, primary branches plant-1, plant height, pod main raceme-1, main raceme length, pod length, 1000 seed weight, oil content, glucosinolate and erucic acid content. Results revealed significant differences (p≤0.05) for all studied traits except pod main raceme and oil content. Brassica genotype DH-7 exhibited minimum days to 50% flowering (109 days). Genotype CA-2 showed maximum 1000-seed weight (8.2g) and minimum erucic acid contents (29.2%) whereas genotype CA-5 exhibited maximum primary branches (9), plant height (224.5cm), glucosinolate (84.5µMg), oil content (54.5%) and low erucic acid (36.3%). High broad sense heritability was observed for days to 50% flowering (0.70), primary branches (0.73), plant height (0.74), pod main raceme (0.84), main raceme length (0.92), pod length (0.68), 1000-seed weight (0.83), oil content (0.65), glucosinolate content (0.81) and erucic acid (0.98). Among the studied genotypes, CA-5 and DH-8 performed better for most of the traits therefore, these genotype could be used in the future brassica breeding programs.
