Morphological characterization, Assessment of genetic variability, divergence and character association in bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria (Mol.) Stand) germplasm: A review

Ajay, Khushboo Kathayat, Saloni Thakur

Bottle gourd is equatorial and sub-tropical creeper. Bottle gourd, is the first mankind’s considerate vegetable species, imparting food, medicine and other supplementary additionally found as vital crop in every home garden. It was probably originated in Africa and extensively grown in South and Southeast Asia and all over the world. Detailed information about genetic variability, genetic diversity, heritability, genetic advance, correlation and path coefficient and of various quantitative traits and their contribution towards yield is essentaial for maximum improvement of crop and maximum yield. Very less work had done in this direction. Hence, the different scientist work in this direction has been reviewed here.
