Horse gram is highly proteinaceous important food legume crop. The present study was conducted at IGKV, RMD CARS, research and instructional farm Ambikapur, during Kharif2019 using 24 genotypes of horse gram. The observation was recorded for eleven characters viz., days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, plant height, number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length, number of seed per pod, 100 seed weight, seed yield, biological yield and harvest index to study the correlation and path coefficient analysis. Genotypic correlation of seed yield recorded positive and significant with characters biological yield, number of pods per plant and number of branches per plant indicating dependence of seed yield on these characters. Biological yield, 100 seed weight, harvest index, number of pods per plant, days to 50 percent flowering and number of seed per pod had high positive direct effect on seed yield. These are the important yield component in the present study on horse gram.

Keywords: Horse gram, correlation, Path analysis, [Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam) Verdec]
