Abstract:

Fifty-five pea (Pisum sativum L.) genotypes were evaluated using eleven morphological traits to assess the interrelationship among yield and yield-related attributes and their direct and indirect effects on seed yield. Based on the correlation coefficient analysis, seed yield per plant showed positive and significant association with green pod yield per plant, shell weight per plant, number of pods per plant and length of pod both at genotypic and phenotypic levels. Path coefficient analysis revealed that direct positive effect on seed yield per plant was exhibited by green pod yield per plant, number of first fruiting node, length of pod, days to 50% flowering and plant height. Hence, from correlation and path analysis it can be inferred that green pod yield per plant and pod length revealed significant and positive correlation and direct positive effect on seed yield and these traits shall be used as key indices towards the direct selection of genotypes for the successful breeding programme for yield improvement of pea germplasm.
