Abstract:

A Field experiment was conducted at University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore with an objective to study the correlation and path analysis studies in Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.). The direct and indirect effects of yield components on fruit yield per plant in brinjal. In C-I fruit length (0.8351) and plant height (0.1554) recorded highest direct positive effects on fruit yield per plant. The major contribution of fruit length on fruit yield per plant was intensified further by positive indirect effect through plant height (0.06560 and fruit width (0.0265). The direct effect of plant height on fruit yield per plant was mainly increased by the indirect effects through fruit length (0.3572) and fruit width (0.0246). In C-II fruit length (0.9324), number of fruit per cluster (0.3028) and number of fruit per plant (0.2544) recorded highest direct positive effects on fruit yield per plant. The major contribution of fruit length on fruit yield per plant was intensified further by positive indirect effects through plant height (0.0233) and per cent fruit set (0.0321). The direct effect of number of fruit per cluster on fruit yield per plant was mainly increased by the indirect effects through per cent fruit set (0.0321). The direct effect of number of fruit per plant on fruit yield was intensified further by positive indirect effects through number of fruit per cluster and fruit width.
