Present investigation of genetic variability, correlation and path analysis for yield and yield contributing characters in 22 genotypes of foxtail millet was carried out during kharif, 2019 at JNKVV, College of agriculture (Rewa, M.P.). Mean value of ear length and grain yield per plant was also observed highest for genotypes SiA-3159. Highest estimates of PCV were observed for harvest index and number of basal tillers per plant and higher GCV were observed for Number of basal tillers per plant and harvest index. High estimates of heritability  was recorded for days to maturity,1000 grain weight, plant height and peduncle length and high genetic advance was recorded for number of tillers per plant and 1000 grain yield per plant. The correlation and path coefficient analysis revealed that grain yield per plant had highly significant positive association with harvest index and peduncle length. Similarly path analysis indicated that harvest index had the maximum positive direct effect on grain yield per plant followed by biological yield, peduncle length, 1000 grain weight, day to maturity, plant height, ear length and flag leaf width. While negative effects on grain yield were contributed by day to 50% flowering, flag leaf length and number of tillers per plant.
