Analysis of variance revealed significant difference for both parent as well as F1s in case of all traits indicating the fact that the parents were genetically highly diverse and those also produced widely diverse F1 hybrids. The hybrids, in general, show appreciable advantage over the parents in plant height, number of capsules/plant and seed yield/plant. All agronomic traits including seed yield revealed wide range of genetic variability among crosses. Pratap, CST 785, E 8 and Phule Til-1 were shown to be one of the parents which topped important agro-economic traits in mean performance. CST 785 × E8 recorded as the highest yielding F1 (7.82) followed by T13×E8, but these revealed poor status for oil content (≤ 50.0%). TC 25, RT 103 and TMV 5 are rich in oil content (≥54.0%), but none of these were involved to excel oil content in the above F1 crosses indicating role of specific parental combination (non-allelic gene interaction) in expression of higher oil content.
