Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out for, Correlation studies and Path Coefficient Analysis in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). Correlation studies showed that the traits viz. harvest index, number of pods per plant, 100 seed weight, number of seeds per pod and plant height 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 number of primary branches per plant, plant height and days to 50 % flowering 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.
