Abstract:

Twenty genotypes of pigeonpea were evaluated for the nature and magnitude of association of seed yield with agronomic characters viz., days to flower initiation, days to 50 % flowering, days to maturity, plant height, number of primary branches per plant, number of secondary branches per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length number of seeds per pod, 100 seed weight, seed yield per plant, protein content percent and pod borer incidence score. Other than this investigation was also carried out to know the direct and indirect contribution of yield traits on seed yield by path coefficient analysis. Correlation studies revealed a positive and significant relationship between the number of seeds per pod followed by the number of secondary branches per plant. The path coefficient analysis showed that the number of secondary branches per plant had the highest direct effect on seed yield. Hence, this character must be considered in the selection for high seed yield.
