Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted at All India Co-ordinated Research Project on Vegetable Crops, OUAT, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India during rabi, 2017-18 to study the correlation and path coefficient analysis in determinate tomato for improvement of desirable genotype (s) for fruit yield and yield attributes. Eighteen genotypes were evaluated by adopting RBD replicated thrice. At both phenotypic and genotypic level, marketable fruit yield plant-1 was positive and significantly correlated with plant height (0.45 and 0.31) and primary branches plant-1 (0.51 and 0.38). Similarly, traits like average fruit weight (0.334), number of locules (0.204), fruit length (0.143), % of fruit set (0.126), flowers cluster-1 (0.106), days to fruit set (0.102), fruits plant-1 (0.096), primary branches plant-1 (0.070) and plant height at final harvest (0.009) in order of merits imposed positive direct effect on marketable fruit yield plant-1. Hence on selecting these characters may give varieties with high yield and better quality fruits.
