Abstract:
The present investigation was undertaken during Kharif, 2019. Total 44 genotypes were grown in randomized block design with two replication at field of section Agricultural Botany, College of Agriculture, Badnapur, Dist-Jalna (VNMKV, Parbhani, M.S.) The phenotypic coefficients of variation were slightly higher than genotypic coefficients of variation which suggest the role of environment in governing these traits. Path coefficient analysis indicated that the characters viz. the average weight of fruit exhibited maximum direct effect on yield per plant followed by number of fruits per plant, plant height, fruit length, number of primary branches per plant, fruit width, number of nodes per plant and internodal length. While days to 50% flowering, and fruit yield per plant recorded negative direct effect at both phenotypic and genotypic level. It indicates that selection of desired germplasm for these traits may be worthwhile for improving fruit yield in future breeding programme.
