Abstract:
Thirty five genotypes including three check cultivars were grown in a RCBD with three replications during Kharif, 2013 at Vegetable Experimental Research Farm, Nauni, Solan, HP to study the correlation and path analysis of yield and other different economic characters in bell pepper. From the correlation study among different characters a highly significant and positive phenotypic and genotypic correlation of yield was found with number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit breadth, average fruit weight, pericarp thickness and harvest duration. Therefore, main emphasis should be given on these characters, while making the selection in bell pepper genotypes. Maximum positive direct effect towards yield was contributed by number of fruits per plant, followed by average fruit weight and pericarp thickness. The studies on path coefficient analysis suggested that selection for average fruit weight, number of fruits per plant and pericarp thickness would be effective for improving yield in bell pepper.
