Abstract:

Correlation and path analysis for 17 traits were conducted for 22 genotypes of pointed gourd during 2016-17 at College of Horticulture, Dr. Y. S. R. Horticultural University, Venkataramannagudem, West Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh. The genotypic correlation coefficients were greater than the phenotypic correlation coefficient. Correlation study indicated that the number of nodes per vine, fruit length, fruit weight, pulp weight per fruit, pulp seed ratio, number of fruits per plant had significant positive association with fruit yield (t/ha) at both phenotypic and genotypic levels. So, improvement in fruit yield per plant is possible by taking above characters as criteria in selection scheme. Path analysis revealed that number of fruits per plant and number of nodes per vine had the greatest direct effect on yield both at phenotypic and genotypic level. Thus, selection for these characters will improve the yield. The results indicated that number of fruits per plant and number of nodes per vine can be considered during selection for improved yield in pointed gourd.
