The present investigation was conducted at Regional Research Technology Transfer Station, Semiliguda, Koraput during kharif, 2017 in 40 advance lines of tomato to find out the degree of association of component characters with yield and the direct and indirect effects of the traits on fruit yield. The results revealed that the estimates of correlation at phenotypic and genotypic levels was positively significantly highest between fruit yield and number of fruits per plant followed by number of flower clusters per plant, number of fruits per cluster, number of flowers per cluster and root volume. Path coefficient studies at phenotypic level showed that the highest direct contribution to fruit yield was observed through number of fruits per plant followed by number of flower clusters per plant and average fruit weight. Hence for increasing the fruit yield, selection should be based on plants bearing more number of fruits, flower clusters and flowers per cluster.

Keywords: Character association, Correlation, Pathcoefficient analysis, Tomato
