Four cytoplasmic genetic male sterile lines were crossed with six restorer lines in Line x Tester design. The resultant 24 hybrids were evaluated along with their parents during Kharif 2017-18. Combining ability analysis revealed predominance of non-additive gene action. The lines ICPB 2043, ICPB 2047 and ICPL 87119 were good general combiners for seed yield and its components. Six out of 28 hybrids showed significant positive sca effects for seed yield and its two or more component traits.

Key words: Pigeonpea, CGMS lines, General combining ability, Specific combining ability.
