Autopopulate a picklist value during record creation

I have to autopopulate a picklist value when i create a custom object record.
That picklist value should be autopopulated when i click create new.Can i do this using trigger?

Yes you can.

Using trigger you can populate the values . but if u want when the user is creating a new record the field should be populated on the page layout, then you need to pass the values in the URL.

Actually i need to pass the parent record's lookup field value(accountid) to the picklist value on child record.How can i pass the value using URL?
Any help would be highly appreciated!
