Coriander is an annual herbaceous spice plant, a family member of Umbelliferae. In India it is grown in 4,47,000 ha area with annual production of 3,14,000 MT during 2013-14 (Anonymous, 2015). This data is shortening as compared to previous statistics with respect to production, this is because of current knowledge about its characteristic association and their effects is incomplete. To fulfill these gaps, an investigation was conducted during the 2014-15 at research farm in Hisar. Data for 11 quality traits were measured and statistically analysed. More of the traits were found having high correlation coefficients at genotypic level than the phenotypic level, demonstrating inherent associations among the characters. Seed yield per plant was associated significantly and positively with number of seeds per umbel, umbelletes per umbel, umbels per plant and secondary branches at both genotypic and phenotypic levels. Concerned to path analysis number of basal leaves, length of basal leaves, secondary branches, umbels per plant, seeds per umbellet, number of seeds per umbel and test weight exerted positive direct effect on seed yield per plant, indicating that selection based on these traits would be effective for improving seed yield in coriander germplasm lines.

Keywords: Coriander, Correlation, Path analysis, Seed yield.
