The interrelationship of various traits with seed yield in mungbean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek)
Keywords: Mungbean, correlation, protein, seed yield.
AbstractThe experimental material consisted of 58 diverse genotypes and 12 traits. Analysis of variance showed that these traits differ to each other. The seed yield per plant had highly significant and positive correlations both at genotypic and phenotypic levels with number of pods per plant, number of pods per cluster, number of cluster per plant and number of seeds per pod. Days to maturity showed negative and highly significant correlation with seed yield per plant at phenotypic and genotypic levels and days to 50% flowering at only genotypic level. The seed yield per plant did not show any significant association with protein content and other traits including number of branches per plant, number of pods per cluster and 100-seed weight that showed positive and significant correlation to protein content. So it can be concluded that selection for these traits enhance the seed yield and protein content in Mungbean.
