In the present study, 105 germplasm lines were evaluated to know the nature of variance for different quantitative traits in relation to yield. A wide range of variability was observed for all the characters under study. Higher PCV and GCV were observed for ear length, ear girth, plant height, grain yield per plant and productive tillers per plant. High broad sense heritability was noticed for grain yield/plant, plant height, ear length, ear girth and 1000-seed weight. High genetic advance over mean was recorded for ear length, plant height, ear girth, grain yield/plant, peduncle length and flag leaf area
