Abstract:

The present research work was carried out at Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during the summer 2014 to study correlation among quantitative traits and their direct and indirect effect on seed yield in F2 populations (Meha X Pusa Vishal, Meha X GM-4) of mungbean. Correlation analysis revealed that seed yield was significantly and positively correlated with pods per plants and harvest index in F2 population of Meha X Pusa Vishal and with plant height, primary branches per plant, clusters per plant, pods per plant, straw yield per plant and harvest index in F2 population of Meha X GM-4. It indicates that an association of two characters is not only due to genes but also due to their influence of the environment. The path coefficient analysis on phenotypic basis revealed that pods per plant, plant height, clusters per plant, seeds per pod, 100 seed weight, straw yield per plant and harvest index had positive direct effect and primary branches per plant had negative direct effects on seed yield in both the populations, indicated that pods per plant directly lead to increase in seed yield.


Keywords: Mungbean, Correlation coefficient and path analysis.
