Abstract:
The experiment on seventy four genotypes of Lentil ((Lens culinaris Medik.) was carried out during 2015-2016 in Augmented block Design (ABD) with ten block at genetic and plant breeding farm (GPB) of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.) The seed yield per plant showed highly significant and positive correlations with the plant height (0.371), number of primary branches per plant (0.422), number of pods per plant (0.286), biological yield per plant (0.938) and harvest index, whereas significant positive correlation was observed with 100-seed weight (0.289).Path analysis identified the highest positive direct effects on seed yield per plant exerted by biological yield per plant, harvest index, number of pods per plant, 100-seed weight. However, other characters contributing substantially positive direct effects on seed yield were number of seeds per pod, days to maturity, days to 50% flowering and number of primary branches per plant.
