Abstract:

Correlations and path coefficient analysis were evaluated for twelve characters including seed yield in forty eight germplasm of mothbean along with two check varieties during kharif 2017. The experiment was carried out in Randomized block Design (RBD) with three replications. Seed yield per plant exhibited significant and positive association with harvest index, number of pods per plant, number of primary branches per plant, 100-seed weight and plant height. The characters namely harvest index, biological yield, number of primary branches per plant, days to maturity, pod length, number of pods per plant and days to 50% flowering had direct positive influence on seed yield per plant. The magnitudes of residual effects were very low which indicated that the twelve characters included in the present study contributed most of the portions of the variability in the seed yield. Therefore these traits can be taken into consideration while exercising selection for seed yield in moth bean.
