Abstract:
The study conducted to know the association among different morpho-economical traits of brinjal. The experiment comprising forty diverse genotypes, grown in randomized block design with three replications. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications at the Main Experiment Station, Department of Vegetable Science, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology Narendra Nagar, (Kumarganj), Ayodhya (U.P.), during autumn-winter season 2016-17. The most important trait, total fruit yield per plant had exhibited highly significant and positive phenotypic correlation with marketable fruit yield per plant (0.9635), followed by unmarketable fruit yield per plant (0.6003), fruits per plant (0.5405), crop duration (0.4345), primary branches per plant (0.3156) and fruit length (0.2426). The higher magnitude of positive direct effect on fruit yield was exerted by marketable fruit yield per plant (0.8423) and unmarketable fruit yield per plant (0.2470) at phenotypic level. However, the positive direct effects of rest of the traits were very low. The negative direct effect on yield by either of the dependent traits were very low. However, plant height and average fruit weight contributed considerable negative direct effects on total fruit yield per plant.
