Abstract:

Brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) is one of the most popular and widely cultivated native vegetable crops of India. It is known as poor man’s vegetable and also called as eggplant. Many of the yield contributing characters is interacting in desirable and undesirable directions. Hence, the knowledge regarding the association of various characters among themselves and with economic characters is necessary for making indirect selection for improvement of economic traits. Therefore the study has been taken up to analyse the correlation in brinjal (Solanum melongena L.) genotypes for seed content, fruit yield and its associated traits at College of Horticulture, UHS Campus, Bengaluru. Results obtained from correlation study computed among eighteen characters revealed that the values of genotypic correlation coefficient were higher than phenotypic correlation coefficient and the fruit yield per plant was significant and positively correlated with plant height, number of fruits per plant, fruit length, per cent fruit set, hundred seed weight, number of fruits per cluster and fruit weight at both genotypic and phenotypic levels.


Keywords: Brinjal, Yield, Genotypic correlation and Phenotypic correlation.
