Ankit Kumar, Mahak Singh, RK Yadav, Poonam Singh and Lallu
The present investigation was conducted with aim to know the magnitude of association of growth, yield and quality traits of mustard. Correlation study indicated that seed yield per plant had significant and positive correlation with 1000 seed weight, leaf area index, harvest index, oil content, protein content, biological yield per plant, seeds per silquae, silquae per plant, primary branches per plant and length of main raceme. However it was negatively and significantly associated with days to 50 % flowering, days to maturity and plant height at phenotypic level. The higher magnitude of positive direct effect at phenotype level on seed yield per plant was exerted by 1000 seed weight followed by biological yield per plant and leaf area index. However negative direct effects were exerted by days to 50 % flowering and primary branches per plant.
