Abstract:

A field experiment entitled “Biometrical studies in chilli (Capsicum annum.L) carried out in RBD Design with three replication during the Kharif season 2016, at Instructional -Cum- Research Farm, Department of Horticulture ,College of Agriculture, Latur, V.N.M.K.V., Parbhani. The correlation and path analysis were studied in twenty genotypes in chilli for 14 different qualitative and quantitative characters . Correlation coefficiants at genotypic and phenotypic level indicated that plant spread, fruit length, fruit diameter, fruit stalk length showed highly significant and positive genotypic and phenotypic correlation coefficient with fruit yield per plant. Reducing and non- reducing sugar showed highly significant and positive genotypic and phenotypic correlation coefficient with total sugar. Path coefficient analysis revealed that plant spread, fruit diameter, weight of seeds per fruit, was found positive and direct effect on fruit yield per plant, while stem girth, primary branches, days to first flowering was found high negative direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Fruit diameter was very high positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Stem girth and primary branches had very high negative direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Plant spread and weight of seeds per fruit was medium positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Days to first harvesting had low positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Plant height and days to first harvesting had negligible effecton fruit yield per plant.
