Abstract:

Thirty tomato genotypes were studied for correlation and path co-efficient analysis in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) at Field Experimentation Center of Department of Genetics and plant Breeding, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad, U.P during Rabi 2017-18. Fruit yield had positive and significant correlation with fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, number of primary branches per plant, number of flowers per cluster and number of locules per fruit. In path coefficient fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, number of flowers per cluster, number of primary branches per plant, days to 50% flowering and days to last fruit harvest exhibited positive direct effects on fruit yield these characters play a major role in recombination breeding and suggested that direct selection based on these traits will be rewarded for crop improvement of tomato.
