Abstract:

A field experiment of thirty maintainer lines of pearl millet had done with an aim to study correlation and path analysis for grain yield and its yield contributing characters so as to identify maintainer lines with desirable attributes for the utilization in crop improvement program during kharif 2019. Correlation studies revealed that grain yield per plant had significant and positive association with ear head length, ear head girth, 1000-grain weight, biological yield per plant at genotypic as well as phenotypic level and harvest index at phenotypic level only. Path coefficient analysis revealed that the ear head length, biological yield per plant and harvest index were the most important characters for selection of high yielding genotypes as they exerted highest positive direct effect as well as positive correlation with grain yield per plant.
