Abstract:

The study was carried out in Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India during 2015 and 2016 to determine the association among 13 traits in 273 soybean germplasm accessions. Correlation coefficient indicated that the seed yield per plant (g) recorded highly significant and positive association with number of pods per plant (0.780), number of seeds per pod (0.524), number of seeds per plant (0.898) and 100 seed weight (0.557g) and significant and positive association significant. Seed yield was negative association with number of pod bearing nodes whereas negative association with days to maturity (-0.036), protein content (%) (-0.050) and oil content (%) (-0.097). Protein content (%) had negative association with oil content (-0.047). Results obtained from this study can make better choice for soybean breeders for selecting genotypes among large number of accessions. This indicated that simultaneous selection for these traits might bring an improvement in seed yield.
