Forty eight F1s along with their 12 lines and 4 testers were evaluated during Rabi 2009-10 for nine quantitative traits to estimate relative heterosis (Ha), heterobeltiosis (Hb) and economic heterosis (Hc) for screening of superior cross combinations of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czern. & Coss.]. All the genotypes were grown in Field Experimentation Center, SHIATS, Allahabad in randomized block design (RBD). Analysis of variance showed significant differences among the genotypes for all characters studied.
