Abstract

Present investigation was carried out in 65 genotypes was grown in 2014-15 cropping season in a randomized block design with three replications. Analysis of variance indicated that genotypes differed significantly for all of the studied traits. Correlation coefficient analysis indicated that all the traits had positive significant correlation coefficient with seed yield except plant height. Path coefficient analysis revealed that 100-seed weight, number of pods per plant, pod length, number of seeds per pod, number of branches per plant days to maturity had positive and direct effects on seed yield, while the characters, days to flowering, plant height, clusters per plant  recorded direct negative effects. Selection based on 100 seed weight, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, number of branches per plant and days to 50% flowering for the improvement of seed yield in faba bean.
