Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out with the objective to assess the character association and magnitude of direct and indirect effects of yield component traits on grain yield of 120 finger millet germplasm accessions which were grown under sodic conditions during Kharif 2018. Correlation analysis revealed that the grain yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with number of productive tillers per plant, number of tillers per plant, straw yield per plant, plant height, 1000 grain weight, days to 50% flowering and days to maturity. Path analysis showed that the high magnitude of direct effect of number of productive tillers per plant, days to 50% flowering, finger length, plant height and 1000 grain weight along with significant correlation in the desirable direction towards grain yield per plant which indicated the true relationship of these characters with grain yield per plant. Hence, these characters are best considered for yield improvement in finger millet.
