Abstract:

Experimental material for the study was consisted of 32 genotypes of two groups (long purple and round purple) including three checks (Punjab Sadabahar, Navina and Swarna Mani). The experiment was executed at Main Experiment, Station of Department of Vegetable Science, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad, during Kharif 2015. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Each treatment consisted of 20 plants in two rows, having spacing of 60x45cm with net plot size of 4.5x1.2m2. Genotypic correlation coefficient was similar in nature and higher in magnitude than the corresponding phenotypic correlation coefficient for most of the traits. Total fruit yield per plant had exhibited highly significant and positive association with fruits per plant (0.670) and total fruit yield per plant is significantly but negatively correlated with fruit length (-0.348). High magnitude of positive direct effect on fruit yield was exerted by no fruits per plant (1.19) followed by average fruit weight (0.65), fruit circumference (0.16) and the negative direct effects on total yield were showed by secondary branches per plant (-0.057), days to first fruit harvest(-0.11), plant height (-0.11) and fruit length (-0.159) but were substantially low. The characters identified above as important direct and indirect yield components merit due consideration in formulating selection strategy in brinjal for selection of high yielding varieties.
