Correlation and path analysis in muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) genotypes

Priyanka, Santosh Choudhary and SK Moond
A field experiment was carried out during summer, 2018 at Agricultural Research Station, Mandor, Jodhpur (Rajasthan). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with 32 genotypes and three replications to estimate the extent of the correlation between yield and other characters and the direct and indirect effect of yield contributing traits through path coefficient analysis. Correlation studies revealed that fruit yield per plant has a strong positive significant association with main vine length at harvest, number of nodes at which first female flower appeared, fruit set, number of marketable fruits per plant, fruit diameter, fruit weight, flesh thickness, cavity width, cavity length, and TSS content both at phenotypic and genotypic levels. In addition, path coefficient analysis of various quantitative characters indicated that cavity width, fruit diameter, number of marketable fruits per plant, number of primary branches, internodal length, fruit length, and fruit weight positively affected fruit yield per plant. In contrast, flesh thickness exhibited the maximum negative direct effect on fruit yield per plant.
