Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out for, “Correlation and Path Coefficient Analysis of Yield and Yield Components in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)”. Correlation studies showed that the traits viz. harvest index, number of pods per plant, number of secondary branches per plant, days to 50% flowering, plant height, days to maturity, number of primary branches per plant and number of seeds per pod exhibited positive and highly significant genotypic correlation with seed yield. This indicates that the simultaneous improvement of these characters through selection. Path coefficient analysis indicated that the characters viz. plant height and number of primary branches per plant exhibited negative direct effect on seed yield per plant. Hence, the selection of genotypes based on these characters as selection criterion would be helpful in improving the seed yield potential of chickpea.
