Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) belongs to family Fabaceae. It is cultivated for food, feed and fodder purposes. The field experiment was conducted in RBD by using 21 newly developed genotypes of Faba bean including checks during rabi 2017-18 and 2018-19 at Research Farm of MAP Section, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar to study the impact of heat under semi-arid conditions. In the present study, wide genetic variability was observed seed yield (kg/ha). Out of 21 genotypes, the genotype HB-13-18 (30.27 q/ha) was best performing genotype, which was closely followed HB-13-43 (29.58 q/ha), HB-13-11 (29.08 q/ha), HB-13-2 (29.07 q/ha), HB-13-10 (29.07 q/ha), HB-13-20 (28.75 q/ha), HFB-1 (c) (25.28 q/ha) and Vikrant (c) (23.80 q/ha). Under heat stress condition, genotype HB-13-18 exhibited good potential for commercial cultivation as it showed less reduction in seed yield and low in HSI, but before recommendation for commercial cultivation to be tested over time and space.
