Abstract:

An experiment was carried at Research cum Instructional farm of Horticulture, Department of Vegetable Science, IGKV, Raipur during kharif season (2015). Correlation and path analysis among different characters of seventy three bottle gourd genotypes were studied. Observations were recorded for the characters viz., days to first male and female flower appearance, node number at which first male and female flower appears, days to 50% flowering, days to fruit set, number of branches per plant, days to first fruit harvest, fruit length (cm), average fruit weight (g), fruit girth (cm), number of fruits per plant, fruit yield (q per ha) and crop duration. Correlation and path studies revealed that number of fruits per plant and average fruit weight had highest significant positive association with yield q per ha at both phenotypic and genotypic levels and also had significant positive direct effect on fruit yield q per ha.


Keywords: Correlation, Path co-efficient, Character association, Yield and bottle gourd.
