Abstract:

An experiment was conducted for 12 different traits in bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) standl) comprising 45 hybrids obtained by crossing 10 parental lines in diallel mating design to study the correlation and direct and indirect effects of different characters on fruit yield. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design. The overall analysis reveals that fruit yield was positively and significant correlated with fruit/plants. The path analysis indicated that number of fruits per plant, fruit weight, fruit length, primary branches/plant had positive direct effect on fruit yield while rest of the traits has indirect effect on fruit yield/plant. Association of this yield-contributing character with yield and among its components is important for making selection in the breeding program and facilitates the partitioning of correlation coefficients on the direct and indirect effects of component characters on yield and any other attributes.
