Thirty genotypes of lentil were evaluated for their seed and seedling characteristics in randomized block design with three replications to study the association and path analysis for different characters. Observations were recorded on 100 seed weight, seed volume, true density, bulk density, porosity, water absorption capacity, water absorption index, germination, seedling length, seedling fresh weight, seedling dry weight and seedling vigour index. The association analysis revealed that the 100 seed weight was positively and significantly correlated with seed volume, water absorption capacity and seedling dry weight, whereas water absorption index, seedling length and seedling vigour index had negative and significant correlation with 100 seed weight. Path analysis was carried out by taking 100 seed weight as dependent variable and other traits as independent variables. The direct and positive effect on 100 seed weight was recorded for water absorption capacity, seed volume, seedling vigour index, porosity, bulk density, seedling fresh weight and seedling dry weight, while negative direct effect were exhibited by true density, germination per cent, seedling length and water absorption index.

Keywords: Association analysis, Lentil, Physical properties, Water absorption capacity, Seedling vigour index, Bulk density
