Abstract: The present investigation was conducted during Kharif, 2014 at Research Block, Department of Crop Improvement and Seed Testing at Department of Seed Science and Technology, V. C. S. G. Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, College of Forestry, Ranichauri Campus with 35 diverse genotypes of barnyard millet including three checks viz., VL-172, VL-207 and PRJ-1. Observations were recorded for growth, yield and seed quality parameters accordingly, phenotypic and genotypic correlations among the traits were estimated biological yield per plant, number of fingers per ear, number of leaves on main tiller and 1000 seed weight, grain yield per plant. The data was utilized for estimation of correlation coefficients. Biological yield per plant, number of fingers per ear, number of leaves on main tiller and 1000 seed weight exerted a very strong positive association towards grain yield per plant at phenotypic and genotypic level. Maximum positive direct effect on grain yield per plant was imposed by biological yield per plant and harvest index at genotypic and phenotypic level. However, high negative direct effect at genotypic level was noted for flag leaf area and number of fingers per ear.
