Abstract: The present investigation was conducted during Kharif, 2015 at Research Block, Department of Crop Improvement and Seed Testing Laboratory at Department of Seed Science and Technology, V. C. S. G. Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, College of Forestry, Ranichauri Campus with 20 diverse genotypes of soybean including two check varieties viz., PS-1347 and PS-1092. Observations were recorded for field and seed quality parameters. Field parameters were recorded for days to 50 per cent flowering, days to maturity, plant height, number of primary branches, number of secondary branches, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length, number of seeds per pod, 100 seed weight and seed yield per plant. The seed quality parameters were recorded for speed of germination, standard germination, root length, shoot length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight, moisture content, accelerated ageing test and cold test. The mean data was utilized for estimation of mean, range, coefficients of variation, heritability, genetic advance and correlation coefficients. The genotypes viz., PS-1585, PS-1586, PS-1588, and PS-1590 exhibiting high mean performance for seed yield and their components. The genotype PS-1347 showed highest speed of germination and performed well under stress condition (cold test). Among all the traits, seed yield per plant exhibited highest GCV and PCV followed by number of clusters per plant,100 seed weight, number of pods per plant and number of primary branches. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance were observed for plant height, number of pods per plant and pod length. The correlation revealed that seed yield per plant showed highly significant and positive correlation with number of pods per plant. From this study it is suggested that these genotypes and characters can be considered as selection criteria in improving the yield of soybean genotypes.
