Abstract:

Genetic parameters study for variability, correlation and path coefficients analysis of thirty six accessions of bird’s eye chilli for fourteen growth and yield attributing traits revealed that the characters such as plant spread, total number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit width, weight of 100 dry fruits, number of seeds per fruit, weight of seeds per fruit, thousand seeds weight, yield, capsaicin and oleoresin contents showed high GCV and high heritability along with high genetic advance and these characters are controlled by additive gene. The study of path analysis indicated that direct selection of plant height, plant spread, days to first flowering, total number of fruits per plant, fruit length, weight of 100 dry fruits, fruit yield per plant, number of seeds per fruit and capsaicin content could be used as selection criteria for improvement. Association analysis revealed that selection criteria based on plant height, number of primary branches per plant, plant spread, total number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit width, dry weight of 100 fruits, fruit yield per plant (g) can provide better result for improvement of fruit yield and quality in bird’s eye chilli.
