Abstract:

The correlation and path coefficient analysis were studied in twenty five genotypes in chilli for 15 different qualitative and quantitative characters. Correlation coefficients at genotypic and phenotypic levels indicated that fruit yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with fruit length, plant stem girth, fruit pericarp thickness, average fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, number of primary branches, fruit breadth and plant height but negative and significant association was found with days taken for first flowering and ascorbic acid content indicating that early flowering and early picking might be associated with increasing the fruits yield per plant. Path coefficient analysis revealed that the highest positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant was exerted by average fruit weight followed by fruit length, fruit pericarp thickness, number of fruits per plant, fruit breadth, number of seeds per fruit, days taken for first flowering, number of primary branches, plant height and days to first fruit harvesting, while as highest negative direct effect on fruit yield per plant was exerted by ascorbic acid content, number of branches per plant, plant stem girth and days for 50% flowering. Therefore, selection should be practiced for average fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, fruit pericarp thickness and fruit length for direct improvement of fruit yield per plant.
