Abstract:

Human malnutrition is a very serious problem of many underdeveloped and developing countries including India. To overcome this problem, there is strong need to focus on breeding of underutilized crops which are of high nutritional value. Therefore, the present investigation was undertaken to find out interrelationships among different traits and their direct and indirect contribution towards seed yield. Seed yield per plant showed significant positive correlation with pods per plant, pod length, seeds per pod, branches per plant, seed size and pod yield per plant at both phenotypic and genotypic levels while with nodes per plant, plant height, 100-seed weight and harvest index at genotypic level only. Pods per plant, seeds per pod, plant height and total soluble solids had high positive direct effects at both phenotypic and genotypic level while traits such as seed size, pod length and pod yield per plant also had positive direct contribution to the total association with seed yield per plant at phenotypic and genotypic level, respectively. From the study, it can be concluded that attention should be paid to these characters for augmentation of seed yield and these traits could be used as selection criteria in faba bean breeding programmes.
