Genetic variability analysis for seed yield and its component traits were carried out in 40 genotypes of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) at College Farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during Rabi 2015-16. Highly significant differences between genotypes were recorded for all the characters studied. High phenotypic and genotypic coefficient of variation was observed for total oil content, secondary branches per plant, seed yield, primary branches per plant, pods per plant, harvest index and green biomass per plant, indicating the importance of additive gene effects, so selection could be effective for improvement of such yield attributes. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was found in primary branches per plant, secondary branches per plant, seed yield, 1000 seed weight, pods per plant, pod length, harvest index, green biomass per plant, seed protein and total oil content. These traits can be given emphasis in performing selection in fenugreek for genetic improvement.
Key words: Fenugreek, variability, selection, Heritability, Yield.
