Abstract:

Black gram is a major pulse crop and a good source of proteins and minerals. Genotypic correlation and path coefficient analysis were used to determine the effect of various traits as components of seed yield in fifty black gram genotypes. Genotypic correlations were recorded higher as compared to corresponding phenotypic correlations for majority of the traits under study indicating that there was an inherent association between these characters at genotypic level. Positive and highly significant correlation with plant height, branches per plant, clusters per plant, pods per plant, seeds per plant, pod length and straw yield; high and positive direct effect of branches per plant, pods per plant, pod length, days to maturity, straw yield and harvest index on seed yield per plant. Since, these association of characters are in the desirable direction, thus, selection practiced for the improvement in one character will automatically result in the improvement of other even though direct selection for improvement has not made for the seed yield.
