Abstract:

Character association and path analysis in twenty-three genotypically diverse indigenous and exotic genotypes of pea was studied for fourteen important characters. The genotypic and phenotypic association of pod yield per plant was significantly positive with TSS, 10 pod weight, pod length, number of pods per plant and fresh weight of root nodules per plant but negative and significant association was found with days to50% flowering indicating that early flowering and early picking might be associated with increasing the pod yield per plant. Path coefficient analysis revealed that number of pods per plant had direct positive effect on pod yield per plant followed by fresh weight of root nodules per plant, node number of first flowering and pod length while, the direct negative effect on pod yield per plant was exhibited by days to 50% flowering. This indicated that these characters could be considered as criteria for selecting high yielding genotypes of pea.
