Thirty six genotypes were used to study their performance, variability, heritability and genetic advance for yield and yield contributing characters under sodic soils. Significant variations were observed for all the characters in all the genotypes used in the experiment. Genotype NDO-3 showed the highest performance for green forage yield followed by JHO-3-99, OS-6, NDO-29, NDO-5 and JHO-2006-2, while the genotype NDO-10 exhibited maximum grain yield plant -1 followed by UPO-212, NDO-1 and NDO-11 h. The highest genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variability were observed for green forage yield plant-1, harvest index, no. of tillers plant-1, grain yield plant-1, characters like green forage yield plant-1, no. of tillers plant-1, harvest index, 1000-grain weight and grain yield plant-1 showed both high heritability and genetic advance.
