Abstract

The present investigation was carried out during kharif, 2016 (June to October) at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Jagtial, Telangana, India to study the phenotypic coefficient of variation and genotypic coefficient of variation, heritability (bs), and genetic advance (GA) for yield contributing characters of 40 maintainer lines of rice.  The experiment was designed in RBD replicated twice. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among rice lines for 15 quantitative traits. The phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) value was higher than the genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV), indicating a negligible environmental influence in the phenotypic expression of traits. The PCV and GCV values were highest for the grains panicle-1 and moderate for bran oil percentage, indicating that these two characteristics have a higher variability within and between populations than other characteristics. All of the characters had high heritability. The range of bran oil content in the 40 maintainer lines used to assess the range of bran oil content was from 11.87% in line B11 to 19.35% in line JMS17B.The genetic advancewas greatest for number of grains panicle-1 (87.86%) and modest for bran oil %. The high and moderate estimations of genetic advance show that traits such as the number of tillers plant-1, test weight, L/B ratio, plant height, bran oil percentage, kernal breadth, grain yield plant-1 and kernal length were selected. The genetic advance obtained from the high and moderate estimates indicate that the selection for these characters can be used to improve the yield of the crop.
