Abstract

Character association in forty eight genotypes of lentil was studied for nine different agro-morphological characters in normal and late sown conditions. Normal sown condition was taken into consideration as optimum environment and late sown as heat stressed environment. The correlation study revealed consistent positive significant character association (at genotypic and phenotypic levels) of pods per plant with seed yield per plant in both sowing conditions. So this character may be considered for yield improvement. From path coefficient analysis study it was revealed that pods per plant showed consistently positive direct effect on seed yield/plant for both sowing conditions.
