Eighteen genotypes of fenugreek were evaluated for growth and yield contributing traits at the Vegetable Research Center, G.B.P.U.A. &T., Pantnagar during the year 2018-19. Analysis of variance revealed that differences among genotypes were highly significant for the characters namely, test weight, number of seeds per pod, days to 50% flowering, days to maturity and seed yield. Minimum days of 50% flowering was found in genotypes FGK131 (46 days) followed by FGK128 (47 days). Plant height ranged from 80.33cm to 111.07cm. Highest number of pods per plant were observed in genotypes FGK132 (105.63) followed by FGK134 (97.80). The highest value for seed yield were observed in genotype FGK124 (1.39 kg per plot) followed by Pant Ragini (1.36 kg per plot). Highest PCV and GCV value revealed greater phenotypic and genotypic variability among the genotypes. For the character test weight, high heritability and high genetic advance were observed.
