The present investigation was carried out with 20 wheat genotypes during rabi 2011-2012 in RBD having three replications at Mountain research centre for field crops SKUAST- K Khudwani Anantnag Kashmir the data were recorded on 13 quantitative characters to study the variability, heritability and genetic advance. Analysis of variance revealed considerable variability among the genotypes for all characters. On the basis of mean performance highest grain yield per running meter was exhibited by MALAN1 (452.526g). High genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) was observed for number of tillers per running meter (20.35) followed by grain yield per running meter (18.08) biomass yield (17.06) and thousand seed weight (15.47) while as medium to low GCV was observed for other characters. High phenotypic coefficient of variation was exhibited by flag leaf width (25.96) followed by Number of tillers running meter, (20.36) while as other characters showed moderate to low phenotypic coefficient of variation.
