Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out at Horticultural Research cum Instructional Farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.). The experiment conducted on nine genotypes of bottle gourd was subjected to evaluate parameters of evaluation of bottle gourd [Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standl.] genotypes in Chhattisgarh plain. Correlation analysis revealed that fruit yield showed the high positive and significant correlation with days to first male flower, fruit girth, vine length, number of fruit per plant, average fruit weight and duration of crop. The path analysis revealed that positive and direct effect of fruit yield on average fruit weight, node number at first female flower, days to first female flower, node number at first male flower, first fruit harvest and fruit girth. Hence, direct selection for these traits may lead to the development of high yielding genotypes of bottle gourd.
