Abstract

This experiment was undertaken to study the correlation and path analysis in six accessions of Decalepis hemiltonii. Correlation study revealed that petiole length, pedicel length and fruit diameter had significant positive correlation with yield per plant. According to path analysis, leaf width, petiole length and fruit length had high positive direct effects on yield per plant. Plant height, leaf length, pedicel length, fruit diameter, thickness of pericarp and thickness of mesocarp had negative direct effects on yield. Thus based on correlation and path analysis, the traits viz., leaf width, petiole length, fruit length, plant height, leaf length, pedicel length, fruit diameter, thickness of pericarp and thickness of mesocarp may be considered as selection indices for high yield.
