Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study, the genetic association among 65 (50 F1s + 15 Parents) treatments for 11 quantitative characters in which biological yield per plant, 100 seed weight, harvest index and pods per plant showed highly positive significant correlations with seed yield per plant in both timely and late sown environments. Whereas, Path analysis showed highly positive direct effects towards expression of seed yield per plant were displayed by biological yield per plant followed by harvest index and 100 seed weight in both timely and late sown environments. Highly positive indirect effects on seed yield per plant were exerted by biological yield per plant via 100 seed weight, pods per plant, plant height, primary branches per plant and days to 50 per cent flowering in both the environments. Significantly inter correlation among traits are useful in breeding programme for improvement of yield and its component traits.
