Abstract:

Correlation studies revealed that the genotypic correlations were higher than their corresponding phenotypic correlation for all the characters and the depended trait pod yield per plant was significantly and positively correlated at both phenotypic and genotypic levels with number of mature pods per plant, kernel yield per plant, shelling percent and days to 50% flowering.Path coefficient analysis revealed that kernel yield per plant, number of mature pods per plant exhibited high and positive direct effects on pod yield per plant. Whereas, 100 kernel weight, plant height, days to 50 % flowering exhibited low and positive direct effects towards pod yield.These findings suggested that emphasis should be given on these traits for selecting elite genotypes and further breeding programme.
