Abstract:

Information regarding the character association is of great importance in simultaneous selection of traits for any breeding programs. However, quantification and interpretation of the correlations magnitude do not provide information on direct and indirect effects. In this context, the path analysis is considered as an alternative and viable tool for the selection process. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the phenotypic correlations between ten major horticultural traits in King chilli (Capsicum chinense Jacq.) lines and its consequences in direct and indirect effects by path analysis. The experiment was laid out in RBD with three replications. The results indicate that the correlation of fruit yield per plant with number of fruits per plant, days to 50% flowering and plant height is highly positive and significant. The number of fruits per plant and days to 50% flowering also exhibited high direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Therefore, for direct improvement of fruit yield per plant in King chilli emphasis should be given to these traits.
