Abstract:

The present research was carried out to determine the selection criteria for yield improvement in selected genotypes of Indian mustard. Thirty genotypes were sown at MGCGV farm Chitrakoot to evaluate the mean and component of variability, correlation and path analysis for yield and various yield components. The correlation coefficient of the seed yield per plant (g.) had significant and positive correlation with plant height; number of primary branch, total no. of siliqua per plant and 1000-seed weight at genotypic level. Path coefficient analysis revealed that, the highest positive direct effect on seed yield (g) was exhibited by total no. of siliqua per plant, plant height, 1000-seed weight, Number of primary branches and number of seed per siliqua had direct positive contribution towards seed yield per plant. For mustard breeding seed per plant is variable with maximum potential of selection for seed yield improvement because this traits possessed high heritability significant positive correlation and maximum positive direct effects with yield.
