Abstract

A study was conducted with the objective to measure the nature and magnitude of association between different characters in brinjal (Solanum melongena L.). For this purpose 48 biparental and 60 F3 progenies were developed following NCD-1 and they were evaluated for 16 yield and quality traits. The correlation studies has shown that there was a strong positive association between major yield contributing characters like fruits per plant, plant height and fruit weight and fruit yield. It was also observed that genotypic correlations were high as compared to their phenotypic correlations revealing strong inherent association between the these characters. Therefore, the result of path analysis revealed that the fruit weight had maximum direct effect on marketable fruit yield followed by number of fruits per plant and fruit length.
