Abstract:

A field experiment was carried out with 28 yam bean germplasm along with 2 released variety namely Rajendra Misrikand-1(RM-1) and Rajendra Misrikand-2 (RM-2) laid out in a Randomised Block Design (RBD) with all recommended agronomic practices during kharif – 2017 and these genotypes have been studied for twelve different characters in association between seed and tuber yield and yield components. Tuber weight showed significant and positive correlation with tuber yield. Pods per plant and pod weight per plant exhibited significant and positive correlation with seed yield. Number of seeds per pod exhibited significant and positive correlation with pod length and pod weight per plant was found to have significant and positive correlation with pods per plant. Pods per plant exhibited significant and positive correlation with number of branches per plant. Such correlation indicates true relationship and thus assists in predicting tuber or seed yield.


Keywords: Yam bean, germplasm, character association, yield parameters.
