Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to estimate the genetic variability in 20 different soybean genotypes. The crop was sown during June, 2010 at Agricultural Research Station, Baffa, Mansehra. The experiment was laid out in RCBD with three replications. The results of analysis revealed that all the characters like days to flowering, days to pod formation, days to maturity, plant height (cm), branches/plant, pods/plant, pod length (cm), seeds/pod, 100 grain wt (g) and yield (g/plant) were significantly affected due to various soybean genotypes. The days to flowering ranged from 34.33 to 62.00, pod formation from 46.00-75.00 days, maturity from 91.33-116.00 days, plant height from 56.51 to 106.00 cm, branches from 4.33 to 13.33 per plant, pods from 47.33 to 165.30 per plant, pod length from 2.00 to 6.66 cm, seeds/pod from 3.33 to 1.00, 100 grain wt from 3.80 g to 17.16 g and grain yield from 3.24 to 39.42 g/plant. The genotypes Zane, Black hack, Bragg and Menlin remained the best among 20 lines studied in term of bearing pods, high grain wt and yield production. It was suggested that these superior lines may be focused and involved in future breeding programme for development of new high yielding soybean varieties.
