Genetic Variability, Heritability and Genetic Advance of Yield and Related Traits of Soybean (Glycine max L.)

Forty-five soybean genotypes collected from BAU-USDA soybean research project were used to study their performance, genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance for six characters viz.- days to maturity, plant height, first pod setting height, pods/plant, 100 seed weight, and seed yield/plant. Significant variations were observed among the genotypes for all the characters studied. Genotypic and phenotypic variations were highest for plant height and pods/plant. Characters like days to maturity, 100 seed weight, plant height, first pod setting height, pods/plant and seed yield/plant showed high heritability. The highest genetic advance associated with highest heritability value for plant height and pods/plant suggests a good scope for selection for these characters to increase the productivity of soybean.
