Abstract: 
The leaf number per seedling length of longest stem cotyledon length and width, unifoliate internode length and leaf blade length and width were measured on over 2000 individual 30-days old seedlings. The seedlings were transplanted to the field and individual plants fresh and dry weight number of shoots per plant and plant height were measured on 900 plants in each of four harvests. Days until 50% flowering percentage of ground cover fresh and dry weight of leaves/plant ratio and size of trifoliate leaves were also measured in experimental plots. The path analysis for yield indicated that most effective traits on fresh and dry yield are plant height and number of shoots respectively. Based on multivariate analysis of variance of 30 half-sib families for all traits measured on seedling and mature plants significant differences were obtained showing genetic variation between families under study. Additive variance for most traits was significant. Heritability based on family mean was more than individual plant base. General combining ability for yield and relative traits were estimated. This information will be used for constructing synthetic varieties from families having good general combining ability.
