A study of correlation and path analysis was undertaken in two F2 populations of Tomato in two promising hybrids Arka Samrat and Arka Rakshak for fruit yield and its component traits. This study helps in identifying the characters which mainly contributing to yield per plant. Yield per plant had highly significant and positive phenotypic correlation with average fruit weight (0.7732 and 0.8532), number of fruits per plant (0.4378 and 0.2011), plant height and Ascorbic acid content (0.1982 and 0.1906) respectively in both the populations, Suggesting the possibility of simultaneous selection for these traits for improving yield in the respective segregating populations. Path analysis for fruit yield per plant in the study revealed that average fruit weight (0.8961 and 0.0274), number of fruits per plant (0.6206 and 0.5354) and plant canopy (0.1376) had direct and positive effects with yield per plant indicating the possibility of increasing fruit yield by selecting these characters in both the segregating populations to have higher potential of yield.

Keywords: Tomato, Correlation, Path analysis, Arka Samrat, Arka Rakshak.
