Abstract:
Greengram is [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] is one of the most important edible food legumes of south and Southeast Asia. It is the third most important pulse crop of India grown extensively in both tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world Yield is the principal factor for determining improvement of a crop. The most important objective in any crop improvement programme is to increase the seed yield through development of high yielding varieties with disease resistance. For selection, the relationship between the traits concerned is an important criterion. Thus an experiment was conducted using twenty one mungbean hybrids which were laid out in randomized block design with three replication. The hybrids were evaluated for yield and its component traits the estimation of correlation coefficient, and path coefficient analysis. Among the characters studied, plant height, clusters per plant, number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, number of seed per pod showed high direct positive effect in path analysis and positive significant association with grain yield. Hence selection may be effective based on these characters.
