Abstract:

The Present investigation entitled ‘Correlation and path analysis for different characteristics in germplasms of moth bean’ [Vigna aconitifolia (Jacq.) Marechal] was undertaken during Kharif 2016. The experiment was carried out in Randomized block Design (RBD) with three replications to derive Correlation coefficient and Direct and Indirect effects in 44 germplasms in Moth bean. In 44 genotypes it has been revealed that, number of pods per plant, number of cluster per plant, number of pods per cluster, number of seeds per pod and 100 seed weight were good indicators of seed yield per plant and can be used for making direct selection for yield. The seed yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with number of pods per plant, number of cluster per plant, number of pods per cluster, number of seeds per pod, 100 seed weight, number of primary branches. The high magnitude of direct effect of number of pods per plant, number of primary branches, number of cluster per plant, number of pods per cluster and number of seeds per pod along with highly significant correlation in the desirable direction towards seed yield per plant indicated the true and perfect relationship between seed yield and these characters suggesting direct selection based on these character would help in selecting the high yielding genotypes in moth bean.
