Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Correlation and Path Analysis for Different Characteristics in Germplasm of Finger Millet (Eleusine coracana (L.) Gaertn.)” was undertaken during Kharif 2017. The experiment was carried out in Randomized block Design (RBD) with three replications to derive Correlation coefficient and Direct and Indirect effects in 40 germplasm of Finger millet. In 40 genotypes it has been revealed that, number of tillers per plant, number of productive tillers per plant, main earhead length, number of fingers per earhead were good indicators of grain yield per plant and can be used for making direct selection for yield. The grain yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with number of tillers per plant, number of productive tillers per plant, main earhead length, number of fingers per plant. The high magnitude of direct effect of number of tillers per plant, number of productive tillers per plant, main earhead length, number of fingers per earhead along with highly significant correlation in the desirable direction towards grain yield per plant indicated the true and perfect relationship between grain yield and these characters suggesting direct selection based on these character would help in selecting the high yielding genotypes in finger millet.
