In the present investigation, sixteen fennel varieties were evaluated in the Department of Plantation, Spices, Medicinal and Aromatic Crops at the College of Horticulture, Anantharajupeta, Dr. Y.S.R. Horticultural University, Dr. Y.S.R. Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh during Rabi season, 2019-20.Association studies revealed that, six characters viz., number of umbels per plants, harvest index, umbels per umbel, seeds per umbel, dry weight of umbel and primary branches per plant exhibited significantly positive correlation at both genotypic and phenotypic level, while days to first flowering and days taken to 50 percent flowering were the traits those attained negative significant correlation at both levels with seed yield per plant. Path analysis indicated that harvest index, primary branches per plant, seeds per umbel and dry weight of umbel have positive direct effect while, days to 50 per cent flowering has negative direct effect on seed yield per plant. Hence, these traits in desirable direction could be relied upon for selection of varieties in order to improve genetic yield potential of fennel varieties.
