Abstract:

Twenty five genotypes of ridge gourd collected from different places were evaluated to know the character association within the traits and to know the causes and effect of independent variables on yield (dependent variable). Character association and path analysis studies showed that genotypic correlation and path co-efficient is higher than phenotypic correlations path co-efficient for all the characters, indicating little influence of environment on genotypes and the presence of inherent association between various characters. The result revealed that that number of fruits/plant and average fruit weight are the important contributing traits influencing yield through direct effect coupled with high positive correlation and selection based on these characters can be effective for developing high yielding varieties.
