Abstract:
Thirty two okra genotypes were evaluated in randomized complete block design with two replications. Thirteen characters were measured on randomly selected plants for the analysis of correlation and path analysis. Correlation ad path coefficient analysis studies revealed that fruit yield per plant exhibited high significant positive association with, plant height, fruit length, weight of fruit and number of fruits per plant indicating the importance of these traits in selection for yield. Direct selection based on these traits would result in simultaneous improvement of aforesaid traits and yield per se in okra. Path analysis studies revealed high direct effect of days to initiation for first flowering, number of branches per plant, fruit length, weight of fruit and number of fruits per plant also recorded desirable direction with yield. Hence, the genotypes which exhibited better performance for these characters can be used in further improvement of okra.
