Correlation coefficient and path analysis for yield traits in coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) genotypes
The experiment was conducted to evaluate 24 coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) genotypes during the rabi 2018- 19 season for yield and yield related traits to assess the correlation and path analysis. Seed yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with umbels per plant, harvest index and seed per umbellate at both phenotypic as well as genotypic level. The characters namely umbels per plant, harvest index, branches per plant and days to maturity showed positive direct effect on seed yield per plant at both phenotypic as well as genotypic level. Therefore, greater emphasis should be given on these characters while selecting for higher seed yield and related traits.
