Abstract:

Phenotypic and genotypic correlation coefficient studies were carried out in recombinant inbred line population of Vaibhav x Anaga cross for yield and quality characters. The association studies showed that fruit yield/plant (kg) has positive correlation with plant height (cm), Average fruit weight (g), number of branches per plant, number of fruits per plant, total soluble solids and number of locules/fruit at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. However, Average fruit weight has significant and negatively correlated with number of fruits per plant, both at the genotypic and phenotypic levels. Number of branches per plant has significant and negatively correlated with total soluble solids (0Brix) at both the levels. Hence, direct selection for these traits is done for improving fruit yield per plant.


Keywords: Correlation coefficient, Tomato, Genotypes, Yield and quality.
