Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Main Experiment Station, Department of Vegetable Science, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.). The path coefficient analysis was carried out from phenotypic and genotypic correlation coefficient to resolve direct and indirect effect of different characters on seed yield per plant. The direct and indirect effect of different characters on seed yield per plant at phenotypic level and genotypic levels was studied. At phenotypic level, harvest index via, test weight (0.574), number of pods per plant (0.891) followed by plant height (0.490), pod length (0.186), and days to maturity (0.403), excreted maximum indirect effect on seed yield per plant. Other character showed negligible value on seed yield per plant. Harvest index and biological yield emerged as a direct contributor to seed yield per plant while harvest index via, days to maturity, plant height, pod length, number of pod per plant and test weight as indirect contributors towards seed yield per plant. Hence due emphasis should be given to these characters during selection for developing high yielding genotypes in fenugreek.
