Abstract:

The investigations on Character association and path analysis studies in vegetable soybean (Glycine max L.) revealed that green pod yield per plant was significantly and positively correlated with number of pods per plant, number of harvests, vitamin C content and calcium content at genotypic and phenotypic correlation levels. Hence direct selection for these traits will lead to the selection of high yielding genotypes of vegetable soybean. Path analysis of data revealed that number of pods per plant showed highest direct positive effect on green pod yield per plant followed by pod weight, days to first harvest and pod length. Plant height, days to vegetable maturity and pod width had direct negative effect on green pod yield per plant at genotypic and phenotypic levels.


Keywords: Vegetable soybean, Genotypic correlation, Phenotypic correlation, Path analysis, Green pod yield per plant
