Abstract:

The present study was undertaken on 31 genotypes of okra to determine the nature of association among different yield attributes and their direct and indirect contribution towards yield at experimental site college farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, NAU, Navsari, Gujarat. Fruit yield per plant has exhibited positive and highly significant correlation with plant height, number of fruits per plant, average fruit length and fiber content at both genotypic and phenotypic level, indicating mutual association of these traits. Path coefficient analysis revealed that number of fruit per plant had maximum direct contribution towards fruit yield followed by average fruit weight, average fruit diameter and plant height. However, average fruit length had the higher negative direct effect on fruit yield per plant followed by days to 50 % flowering, number of branches, internodal length and fiber content. These important traits may be viewed in selection programme for the further improvement of okra.
