Abstract

The correlation coefficients were worked out among various traits viz. days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, plant height, no. of primary and secondary branches, number and length of siliquae, test weight and seed yield per plant in F-4 progenies among different crosses during rabi 1997–98. The results revealed that number of siliquae per plant had the strongest positive and significant correlation with yield at genotypic as well as phenotypic levels. The characters viz., days to 50% flowering, number of primary and secondary branches, plant height, number of seeds per siliquae and number of siliquae per plant had shown positive correlation mutually as well as with yield at both the levels.
