To assess the Character Association and Path Analysis in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) Germplasm Lines Grown under Late Sown Condition
International Journal of Plant & Soil Science,
A set of twenty one chickpea genotypes were grown and asses to know the amount of genetic variability, genetic association seed yield and thirteen quantitative traits, direct and indirect effect of yield contributing characters on seed yield. Correlation coefficient analysis revealed that seed yield per plant exhibited positive and significant association with 50% pod setting and plant height at genotypic and phenotypic levels. Correlation coefficient analysis revealed that seed yield per plant exhibited positive and significant association with 50% pod setting and plant height at genotypic and phenotypic levels. Path analysis revealed that characters such as plant height, number of primary branches, number of seeds per pod, hundred seed weight, biological yield and harvest index have positive direct effect on seed yield per plant at genotypic level.
