Cite article:- Balai O.P., Singh D., Jain U.K. (2023). GENETIC VARIATION AND CHARACTER ASSOCIATION AMONG YIELD AND YIELD RELATED TRAITS IN FENUGREEK. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 40(2): 143 - 146. doi: .
An evaluation of 36 genotypes including checks of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum
L.) has showed significant variability for all the ten traits. High estimates of PCV along with
GCV as well as heritability and GA were observed for fat content, protein content and number
of pods/plant. Moderate heritability alongwith high GA was recorded for number of pods/plant.
High heritability along with moderate GA were recorded for plant height and seed yield/plant.
Low heritability alongwith low genetic advance was recorded for number of seeds/pod. Based
upon the correlation and path coefficient analysis, it was concluded that number of pods/plant,
number of seeds/pod and test weight were the most important traits as they exerted positive
direct effect as well as showed positive correlation with seed yield
