Abstract:

Correlation and path analysis were studied in 50 genotypes of foxtail millet for 13 characters during kharif 2017-18. The investigation revealed positive significant correlation of plant height, panicle length, number of productive tillers per plant, test weight and carbohydrate with grain yield per plant at phenotypic level. Path analysis studies revealed that panicle length, number of productive tillers per plant, test weight and carbohydrate had true relationship with grain yield per plant by establishing significant positive association and positive direct effect at phenotypic level. Considering the nature and magnitude of character associations and their direct and indirect effects, it can be inferred that panicle length, number of productive tillers per plant, test weight and carbohydrate could serve as important traits in any selection programme for developing high yielding foxtail millet genotypes.
