The present investigation was carried out to study the mean performance, character association and path coefficient analysis in okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench) during the kharif season of 2019-20. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with two replications at Olericulture Unit, Department of Horticulture, Main Agricultural Research Station, UAS, Dharwad. In the present study, the genotypes 360-R, IC-014096, 29-2-2, IC-00795, IC-755647 and 10-191 recorded high mean performance for fruit yield per plant. Significant and positive correlation was observed for number of fruits per plant, average fruit weight, fruit length, plant height 90 DAS, plant height 30 DAS, plant height 60 DAS and fruit diameter with fruit yield per plant. This indicates the possibility in increasing the yield by selecting for these characters. Path coefficient analysis indicated that, the number of fruits per plant had highest positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant followed by average fruit weight, days to fifty per cent flowering, internodal length, number of branches per plant, fruit length, fruit diameter, days to first flowering and plant height 60 DAS. This further indicates the positive correlation between these characters.
