Abstract

Path analysis of F2 populations in blackgram were studied for eight characters. It revealed that direct effect on seed yield was exerted by the characters namely, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant and pod length. Among the indirect effects, the character plant height influences the number of pods per plant and clusters per plant. This suggested that these characters deserve greater weightage while formulating selection indices in blackgram.
