Abstract:

Chilli (Capsicum annuum L) is one of the most important cum vegetable spice crop grown in India with great export potential. The exoeriment was undertaken to study the variability, genetic correlations and path coefficients of yielding traits in 24 genotypes of chilli. The analysis of variance revealed the significant differences among the genotypes for almost all the characters studied which indicating that presence of great deal of genetic variability for different traits. Among these genotype Hyb-3(2)-2 one of the most promising one showed maximum fruit yield plant-1, fruit length, fruit girth and pericarp thickness. Genetic variability of fruit yield plant-1, number of fruits plant-1, fruit girth and seeds fruit-1 emerged as most reliable characters for selection because of their probable conditioning by the additive gene action. Moderate GCV coupled with high broad sense heritability and moderately high genetic advance was registered in three characters namely fruit yield plant-1, number of fruits plant-1, fruit girth and seeds fruit-1. Character associations both correlation and path co-efficient revealed that fruit weight, number of fruits plant-1, primary branches plant-1and plant canopy were the most important selection criteria for improving yield of both green and dry chilli.
