Abstract:

Forty ricebean genotypes were evaluated for different quantitative traits in RBD design at the experimental farm of the Department of Organic Agriculture, CSKHPKV, Palampur. The objective of the present study was to estimate the extent of association between pairs of characters at genotypic and phenotypic levels and thereby compare the direct and indirect effects of the characters. Correlation studies revealed that seed yield had significant positive correlation with days to maturity, plant height, pods/plant, pod length, seeds/pod, 100-seed weight, clusters/plant and pods/cluster indicating that selection through these traits would be effective. Path studies revealed clusters/plant, pods/cluster and plant height as important traits for direct selection for yield as these traits have high direct effects. Days to maturity have high indirect effect via plant height which contributed to the positive and significant correlation with seed yield/plant.
