Sixteen genotypes of wheat genotypes were evaluated during Rabi 2013-14 for variability parameters. The analysis of variance revealed significant for the characters. The estimates of PCV and GCV were high for days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, plant height (cm), number of productive tillers/ plant, spike length (cm) number of grains/ spike, 1000 grain weight (g), biological yield /plot (g), harvest index (%) and grain yield /plot (g). High heritability coupled with high genetic advance expressed as percentage of mean was observed for spike length, productive tillers per plant and the genetic advance as percent of mean in pooled analysis was highest for plant height and genetic advance as percent of mean in pooled analysis was lowest for harvest index by grain yield/plot (g) and biological yield/plot (g) indicating that these traits were mainly governed by additive gene action and responsive for further improvement of these traits.
Key words: Wheat, Genetic variability, Heritability, Genetics advace.
