Variability studies were carried out among different accessions of Argyrolobium roseum for 12 metric traits under natural and cultivated conditions.Almost all characters showed higher values in cultivated than natural population. Leaf breadth recorded highest CV (30.59%). Highest percentage of vitexin and D-pinitol (0.208 and 0.773% dwb) was observed in RAR-7 and RAR-6, respectively, under cultivated conditions. Phenotypic coefficient was higher than genotypic coefficient of variation. The association analysis revealed that root yield had positive significant correlation with 100 seed weight (r=0.839) biomass yield (r=0.601), where biomass yield had a positive significant correlation with leaf length, single pod weight. High heritability (97.4–99.8%) coupled with moderate genetic advance ranged between (49–67%) as a percent of mean was observed for leaf breadth, pod length, total foliage biomass yield and total root yield/plant. This suggests that direct selection for these traits is suitable for the improvement of this crop.
