The present experiment was conducted in on 220 cultivars of mustard to measure the correlation path analysis of agro-morphological traits on yield. Observation of ten agro-morphological traits viz. Days to 50% Flowering, Plant height (cm.), No. of primary branches, No. of secondary branches, Days to maturity, Length of siliqua, No. of siliqua / plant, No. of seeds/siliqua, 1000 seed weight (gm.), Yield/plant (gm.) were recorded to analyze the data. The seed yield (q/ha.) showed highly significant and positive correlation with plant height, Number of siliqua per plant, Number of secondary branches, Number of primary branch. However at phenotypic level days to 50% flowering, length of siliqua and Number of seeds persiliqua showed non-significant and positive correlation with yield per plant. The correlation coefficient of seed yield (q/ha) showed non-significant but negative correlation with Plant height, Number of primary branches, Number of secondary branches, Days to maturity, Number of siliqua per plant and 1000 seed weight (g) at phenotypic level. Path coefficient analysis revealed that, the highest positive direct effect on seed yield (g) was exhibited by Length of siliqua, days to 50% flowering and Number of seeds per siliqua. While negative direct effect was recorded among 1000 seed weight, Number of primary branches, Plant height, Number of secondary branches and Number of siliqua per planton seed yield. Number of primary branches, days to maturity, length of siliqua, 1000 seed weight, days to maturity, and 1000 seed weight exhibited negative indirect effect on seed yield.
