Abstract

Forty four genotypes of groundnut were evaluated for path coefficient analysis
In three years at two locations. Path coefficient analysis Indicated positive direct
contribution of pods/plant and harvest Index to the seed yield Irrespective of
locations and years effect. Their correlations with slled yield were also significantly
positive. So pod yield/plant and harvest Index can be used directly as selection
criteria for Improvement of seed yield In groundnut.
