Abstract:

Genetic studies in terms of correlation and path coefficient analysis were studied for10 quantitative characters of thirty-two genotypes of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.). Total yield per plant had exhibited highly significant and positive association with marketable fruit yield per plant, fruit weight, fruit weight per plant and fruit circumference and significant association with marketable fruit yield per plant. High magnitude of positive direct effect on fruit yield was exerted by marketable fruit yield per plant followed by fruit weight and fruits per plant. The negative direct effects on yield was showed by fruit circumference and plant height but were substantially low. Marketable fruit yield per plant was found to have substantial positive indirect effect for fruit weight, fruit circumference and fruits per plant. Direct selection may be carried out considering these traits as the main selection criteria to cut down indirect effects of the other characters throughout the development of high-yielding eggplant varieties.
